Let’s Change Energy for Good

The Global Energy Alliance for People and Planet will accelerate and scale equitable energy transitions in low- and middle-income countries serving as an onramp to opportunity for 1 billion people, while averting carbon emissions, expanding energy access and creating jobs in the process.

The Opportunity

People can’t live on a depleted and polluted planet. The urgent need for modern electricity and more jobs comes at the same time humanity must unite to address the climate crisis before the devastation of global warming becomes irreversible. 

Today, nearly half the world’s population still lacks access to reliable power, preventing families, farmers and entrepreneurs from securing their livelihoods and communities from accessing modern healthcare and education. Now, for the first time in history, the frontiers of energy technology can give people the electric power they need to join the global economy, creating jobs while also reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

Our Focus on Renewable Energy Solutions

The Global Energy Alliance for People and Planet is focused on three types of renewable energy projects that will create green jobs, enable the productive use of power for low-income communities and promote gender equity. Our three renewable energy pillars include:

  • Fossil Fuel Transitioning Decommission and repurpose large aging coal plants and installed diesel / heavy fuel oil assets
  • Grid-based Renewables Deploy utility-scale renewable generation, storage, distribution, and transmission
  • Distributed Renewable Energy Scale mini-grid and roof-top solutions to off-grid and underserved communities

Our Approach

Together with partners around the world we create holistic ecosystems around our three pillars of renewable energy solutionsWe work to: 

National Transformational Energy Programs: First Five Examples

Call for Country Partnerships

Unlocking a robust pipeline of projects that can be replicated and scaled to advance our shared ambitions

At COP26, The Global Energy Alliance for People and Planet announced a Call for Country Partnerships (CCP), which offers financial and technical assistance to countries with the vision, commitment, and highest level of leadership to advance national transformational energy programs in distributed renewable energy, grid-based renewables and/or fossil fuel transitioning. The goal is to help countries create pipelines of energy projects that can be aggregated, replicated, and scaled – reducing carbon emissions, expanding energy access, and creating green jobs. These projects should help countries make significant strides towards existing national goals and plans (e.g., Nationally Determined Contributions, Energy Compacts, Integrated Electrification Plans) and attract a range of financing, including from development finance institutions and private capital.

Governments are invited to respond to the alliance’s first Call for Country Partnerships by submitting their Expression of Vision (EV) now until March 15, 2022 to info@energyalliance.org

Detailed guidance on how countries can develop and submit an EV can be downloaded in English, French and Spanish.

The EV is the initial step for countries to participate in the 2022 Call for Country Partnerships. Submitting an EV kicks off a collaborative process with the alliance, in which we jointly explore an energy program, define success, and for those selected, assemble a support package to deliver results.

A Visionary Strategic Partnership

Unlocking transformational programs in any given country requires a radically collaborative approach. We bring together stakeholders that would otherwise remain fragmented, and enable transformational programs to flourish.

Types of Partnerships

  • Anchor Partners The alliance’s philanthropic partners and donors set our strategic vision, provide risk-tolerant grant capital, and ensure the alliance’s capacity to deliver results on a sustained basis.
  • Investment Partners The alliance will work with investment partners to help de-risk blended finance facilities, allowing them to finance a greater number of projects more quickly and to adopt a greater risk profile.
  • Delivery Partners The alliance will leverage partner with organizations with expertise from around the world to bring policy, technical and project development capacity to bear and ensure success against our goals.
