This study takes one of the first comprehensive looks at how concessional finance has already been used and could be used in the future to accelerate deployments of clean energy technologies in emerging markets. It then analyzes how concessional funds may be effectively deployed in the future, and in what types of markets concessional finance can generate the greatest impact by driving down technology costs, creating and de-risking markets, and opening doors for commercial finance.

This study reviews concessional finance efforts of the Climate Investment Funds’ (CIF) Clean Technology Fund (CTF) in five countries: Chile, Kazakhstan, Mexico, Morocco, and Thailand. The CTF was established to provide scaled-up financing to developing countries for the demonstration, deployment, and transfer of low-carbon technologies with a significant potential for long-term greenhouse-gas emissions savings.
