The way that developing countries meet their rapidly growing energy demand will be crucial for global efforts to curb climate change. Besides the obvious effect on the climate, the reliable and affordable supply of cleaner energy has an important social and economic impact. This is why renewable energy is one of Finnfund’s priority sectors and the largest sector with a portfolio and commitments worth 169 million euros.
We continuously invest in wind, solar, hydro and bio energy, as well as energy efficiency and storage. We do not finance coal energy. The size of our projects varies and they make use of a wide range of technologies and financing solutions. We also help to build partnerships with international financiers and technology suppliers.
In 2018, all Finnfund investments in energy generated a total of 6,500 GWh. This is equivalent to the electricity consumption of over 12 million people in the countries in which the investments are located. Read more here.
