Acumen and Green Climate Fund Boost COVID-19 Relief in off-Grid Energy Access

This week, the board of the Green Climate Fund (GCF) approved a $30 million investment in the Energy Access Relief Facility, a fund to support off-grid energy companies through the COVID-19 pandemic. As a pioneer in the off-grid energy access sector, Acumen helped catalyze a global alliance of investors and donors to make this fund a reality. This support from GCF marks a major milestone in this critical effort to sustain the sector.
