IFC has decades of experience in financing, structuring, and leading complex energy transactions in emerging markets. As a leading financier of low-cost renewable energy, IFC has financed more than 8 GW of hydropower, 8 GW of solar, and close to 6 GW of wind projects to date. IFC also finances transmission and distribution infrastructure, supporting network resilience and further renewable energy integration. 

IFC can provide and mobilize senior debt with long maturities, fixed or floating rates, local currencies and flexible amortization profiles, and subordinated debt with terms tailored to meet project needs. We have significant expertise in project finance and supporting our clients through corporate finance facilities. IFC can provide green and sustainability-linked financing and implementation support. 

IFC can also provide up to 20 percent of the equity invested in a project or company, and on a selective basis, start-up equity, collaboration, and co-development assistance for early-stage project development. 

Drawing from in-house technical expertise, we provide advice on engineering, environmental standards, public-private partnerships (PPPs), risk management, and more. We also draw on extensive knowledge of local markets and new technologies and have a successful track record in markets undergoing reform.
