Energy transition for a resilient future

Accelerating universal energy access in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC)

A climate vulnerable region, LAC needs to deliver energy access to the remaining 18 million unelectrified people. GEAPP works with partners to mobilize funding and build capacity so countries can accelerate innovative DRE solutions in remote areas and scale BESS projects for resilient grids. By providing support to meet just energy transition goals, the region can ensure an inclusive energy system.
