The Energy Transition Accelerator Financing (ETAF) Platform is a collaborative climate finance solution designed to advance the Global Energy Transition. Since its launch at COP27 in Egypt, the platform has garnered over USD 1 billion in finance pledges and co-financing for renewable energy projects in IRENA member countries, attracting more than 2GW of project submissions. To date, ETAF has facilitated access to funding for 900MW capacity projects worth nearly USD 1 billion.
ETAF hosted an informative webinar to share insights on the platform's critical assessment requirements, enhancing participants' chances of obtaining funding. The webinar offered a step-by-step guide on platform navigation and project submission, highlighting common pitfalls to avoid during the process. Renewable energy project developers, proponents, and government representatives who have initiated or completed project submissions, as well as those planning to start in 2023, were encouraged to attend. The webinar also provided the opportunity for attendees to ask clarifying questions.
The webinar covered a range of topics, including an introduction to ETAF, its developments and achievements, and strategies for maximizing financing opportunities. Additionally, the session delved into the procedures for submitting projects, as well as the screening, evaluation, and review processes, ensuring a comprehensive understanding for all participants.
