CPI’s analysts and advisors work to improve the most important energy and land use policies in the world, with a particular focus on finance. Our efforts help nations grow while addressing increasingly scarce resources and climate risk.

  • The new Energizing Finance report series from SEforALL, CPI, and partners reveals that—in order to achieve global universal energy access goals by 2030—by scaling and refining finance strategies, we can reach more people, more affordably, with sustainable energy.
