Europe has made rapid progress in deploying renewable energy. Managing the costs and grasping the opportunities of its energy transitions requires that market design, transmission and delivery systems keep pace with new sources of power. At the same time, Europe is playing a leading role in providing climate finance and assistance to developing countries looking to drive low-carbon, climate-resilient growth.


Our Focus

CPI supports European policymakers by analyzing their climate finance flows, and providing insight into effective financing of renewable energy and energy efficiency.
CPI has offices in London where both Executive Director David Nelson and Director Jane Wilkinson are based, managing Energy Finance and Climate Finance work respectively.
