Eligibility CEFPF resources are used to service developing member countries(DMCs) and can be tapped through ADB’s operations department.

Funding Objectives

This fund provides support for cost effective investments in technologies and practices that result in greenhouse gas mitigation. CEFPF resources are also intended to finance policy, regulatory, and institutional reforms that encourage clean energy development.

Financing Mechanisms

About 30% of CEFPF’s resources will be used for standalo+ne technical assistance projects and direct charges; and about 70% will be used for grant components of investments and may also be used to procure equipment and works based on advanced technologies, back financing mechanisms or risk sharing facilities to promote CE, and services to lower barriers.
