Engaging the Banking Sector in financing sustainbale energy in Mexiko
As of: May 2021
The project developed training programmes to equip professionals from local banks and financial institutions with the skills they need to evaluate investment projects in renewable energies. In order to determine the risks of renewable energy investments, staff in the banking sector needs expertise in a range of areas such as the specifics of different kinds of renewable energy or the sale of electricity. The project was also developing an instrument that banking professionals could use to calculate the carbon reduction potential of sustainable energy investments. The training programmes had been designed as e-learning courses, which means that they can also be used in other Latin American countries.
