The Access to Energy Fund (AEF) was set up to actively support the creation of access to sustainable energy in developing countries by providing risk bearing funding; equity, local currency/subordinated loans, guarantees and, to a limited extent, grants.

  • 1 The figures provide a glance at the achievements of the AEF portfolio. Installed capacity, GHG avoidance and direct jobs supported are results reported by the companies and funds within the portfolio. Indirect jobs supported are estimated by the Joint Impact Model. These are total figures, unattributed to the size of AEF’s investment as agreed with the Dutch government. Beneficiaries reached (with access to renewable energy) are also reported by the companies and funds but are attributed according to the share of total public financing. The figures shown do not include new investments from 2023, as the most recent impact data available from clients pertains to the reporting year that concluded in 2022.
  • 2 The calculation of the co-investments amounts is based on the OECD DAC methodology and is aligned with calculations made by external advisor. It includes only the commitments for mobilized finance in 2023.
