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.

Each Lab instruments receives support from CPI's analyst team to complete financial modeling, build an ...
Renewable resources are at the center of the discussion on how to move towards a clean and reliable energy system around the world and are seen as a key instrument in combatting greenhouse gas emissions and climate change. Brazil especially holds potential for advancing its level of solar energy through distributed generation, which generates power on-site at the point of consumption. In this new study, CPI researchers analyzed more than 5.000 municipalities in Brazil and show that demandside factors drive consumer uptake of PV distributed energy generation.
Today we are publishing a working paper on the future design of the energy market as part of a program that follows on from analysis for the Energy Transitions Commission, and new concepts presented as part of Eurelectric's Market Design 2050.
In this paper, we highlight at least four major problems of incremental refinement to existing market models:
• Under high ...
