Financing options for bioenergy projects and programmes

Apr 2010

Modern bioenergy has been developing rapidly in the last several years and presents great opportunities for sustainable development and climate change mitigation. However, developing countries encounter difficulties in financing their bioenergy projects and programmes.
This report “Financing options for bioenergy projects and programmes” was developed by the Secretariat of the Global Bioenergy Partnership (GBEP) and is the result of an extensive information-gathering process. Key information included in this document was kindly provided by GBEP Partners and Observers.
The main objective of this report is to facilitate access to financing for bioenergy for sustainable development at the project, programme and sectoral level in developing countries. The report intends to provide a comprehensive tool for use by national governments and project developers when assessing different financing opportunities for bioenergy projects and programmes, giving a clear picture of selection criteria and bioenergy project characteristics that should be fulfilled to receive these financing.
