Energy for Growth Hub
Future of Energy Tech

Wind & Solar

Big wind & solar can reduce costs and help build low-carbon power systems across Asia and Africa.

The Issue

Renewable energy is a critical component of any long-term energy plan. Solar in particular has enormous potential in Africa, but is currently under-exploited across many frontier and emerging markets.


Utility-scale wind and solar farms could generate abundant energy to power economies across Africa and Asia, but they face huge barriers of risk, available financing, and integration into national grids.

Our Approach

The Hub translates the latest data and research on the cost, technology, and policy issues that constrain solar and wind power into insights policymakers and funders can use to deploy bigger and faster.
