Renewable energy is energy that is collected from renewable resources, which are naturally replenished on a human timescale, such as sunlight, wind, rain, tides, waves, and geothermal heat. Renewable energy often provides energy in four important areas: electricity generation, air and water heating/cooling, transportation, and rural (off-grid) energy services.

Foreign Currency PPA Risk Analysis and Assessment of Financing Options for Renewable Energy Development in UgandaType:Technical AssistanceDate of submission:Phase:CompletedCountries:
Strategies for attracting investment in Uganda's renewable energy initiatives need to target global nvestment. To attract foreign investors’ participation in the Ugandan electricity sector, hard currency denominated contracts are required to mitigate foreign exchange risk. The Electricity Regulatory Authority is seeking support to assess various options to further balance economic and financial viability of renewable energy investments.

The vulnerability of the Bahamas to the impacts of climate change is well known given its geographical vulnerabilities (limited land mass, low-relief and dispersion of islands, i.e., environmental vulnerabilities (high temperatures, storm surges, sea level rise, flooding, tropical cyclones and non-tropical processes), the concentration of socioeconomic activities and critical infrastructure in narrow coastal zones, its heavy dependence on tourism as a revenue source, and the limited human and institutional capacity.

Togo struggles with very low energy access rates, especially in rural areas. Togo’s energy supply predominantly comes from traditional energy sources (biomass consisting of wood fuel and agricultural residue), which account for 70 to 80 percent of the national energy mix. New and renewable energy sources (e.g. solar, wind) are only marginally represented in the country's generation facilities. In 2015, Togo prepared and submitted its Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC), which identified the energy sector as a priority area.
