EnDev RBF Facility webinar series & closing event 2020: insights from 7 years of implementation
9 June 2020
Closing the RBF Facility’s circle from beginning to end: how has it influenced the energy access sector, where are we standing today and where are we heading? We invite you to join the discussion.
Since 2013, the Energising Development (EnDev) partnership is piloting results-based financing (RBF) approaches to enhance energy access markets with funding provided by UK’s Department for Inter-national Development (DFID). EnDev´s RBF Facility (RBFF) comprises 17 projects across 14 countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America. It covers a wide range of modern energy technologies. So far, EnDev’s RBFF reached 5.8 million people with improved access to energy.
The webinar series
Although EnDev’s RBFF is phasing out this year, applying RBF in the sector does not stop here – the prospects are bright and promising. EnDev thus wants to share experiences in implementing this rich portfolio of projects. It is time to combine perspectives of a variety of stakeholders ranging from public funders, RBF practitioners and the private sector to answer some crucial questions:
- Can RBF develop self-sustaining markets for energy and achieve additional results?
- Is RBF a “better” alternative to other development cooperation modalities?
- What RBF-approaches and design features worked in which circumstances and why?
From June until November 2020, this webinar series will address the following topics in the run-up to the final closing event:
