The premise of this report is that, while most finance for low carbon solutions will likely come from the private sector, public funding can play a key role in mobilizing and leveraging private capital. The report presents the rationale and framework for public finance mechanisms, including debt, equity, carbon, and grant-focused mechanisms. Guidance on selecting public finance mechanisms appropriate to technology maturity, market segment, and country conditions is also provided.
