The Global Energy Alliance for People and Planet launched at COP26 with USD10 billion of committed capital to accelerate investment in green energy transitions and renewable energy solutions in developing and emerging economies.

This historic partnership leverages catalytic grant funding to unlock investment capital with the aim of mobilizing public and private capital in order to reach 1 billion people with reliable, renewable power, avoid and avert 4 billion tons of carbon emissions, and create, enable, and support more than 150 million jobs that will drive economic growth over the next decade. The Alliance serves as a platform for collaborative action and to provide grant funding, technical assistance, and a range of financing options.
