The $796 million Scaling Up Renewable Energy in Low Income Countries Program (SREP) is a funding window of the $8.1 billion Climate Investment Funds. It was established to scale up the deployment of renewable energy solutions in the world’s poorest countries to increase energy access and economic opportunities. Channeled through five multilateral development banks (MDBs), SREP financing aims to pilot and demonstrate the economic, social, and environmental viability of low carbon development pathways building off of national policies and existing energy initiatives.
