De-Risking Renewable Energy Investment (DREI) Framework
Country support in transition towards more sustainable energy systems (includes large-scale grid-based electricity projects using wind or solar, and small-scale off-grid electrification projects such as solar home systems or solar-battery minigrids).
DREI is an innovative, quantitative framework to assist policymakers in identifying cost-effective instruments to promote and scale-up private sector investments in renewable energy. The application of DREI is data-oriented, relying on a structured methodology and a suite of financial models to systematically assess the barriers and associated risks holding back private sector investment. The framework delivers clear de-risking recommendations to policymakers, supported by concise visual outputs.
