Access to Energy Fund 2019
The Access to Energy Fund (AEF) was set up to actively support the creation of access to sustainable energy in developing countries.
In 2019, the broadening of the country list, from Sub-Saharan Africa to all OECD DAC countries, led to investments in the renewable energy sector in Pakistan, Bangladesh and Ukraine.
