CTI PFAN Africa Forum for Clean Energy Financing

1. Introduction
"The world faces the daunting combination of surging energy demand, rising greenhouse gas emissions and
tightening resources. A global energy technology revolution is both necessary and achievable; but it will be a
tough challenge. No single form of energy or technology can provide the full solution." Nobuo Tanaka, Executive
Director of the International Energy Agency (IEA) Tokyo, June 2008

W    e believe there are many who have the same passion for the environment as we do. Individuals who
     not only possess bright and innovative ideas that can shape the environmental future of tomorrow
but have the determination to carry these ideas out into completion. That person could be you!

The CTI PFAN Africa Forum for Clean Energy Financing (AFRICEF), promoted by the Climate Technology
Initiative (CTI) and its Private Financing Advisory Network (CTI PFAN), the Renewable Energy and Energy
E ciency Partnership (REEEP), United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and the
International Centre for Environmental Technology Transfer (ICETT), seeks to nurture individuals, project
teams and consortia, start up and existing companies with environmentally bene cial business
proposals with the aim of making them happen.

Once you have quali ed for the 2nd stage of the Forum, you will receive coaching from experts in
the eld, who will guide you in creating a nancially, socially and environmentally viable business
plan. With this concrete business plan, you will be able to stand in front of investors with full
con dence that it will be well received and that it is ready for action. An investors’ forum will
be held in Johannesburg to which potential investors will be invited to provide you with an
opportunity to present your plan and help source the nancing that you need. In addition, a
panel of judges, made up of investors, industry specialists and business executives who have a
keen interest in enabling cleaner and greener projects will select the best projects for award of
the CTI Africa Clean Energy Financing Awards.

Accordingly, it is our expectation that through this Forum, there will be a marriage between
budding entrepreneurs and ready investors. So take your ideas to the next level and grab this
opportunity to see your business proposals transform into business reality.

     development and presentation of their business plans and will be pro led among the CTI PFAN
     investor networks.

6. Can other modes of presentation be used to support the business plan?

Y    ou may choose to use video or any other form of appropriate presentation media (within reason
     and logistical availability) to support your business plan under stage 2. The nal presentation
in front of the judges at the Johannesburg Forum is, however, limited in time and much of their
evaluation will be on your success in convincing them of the credibility of your business plan. As
such you should carefully consider the format and timing of your presentation and it is expected
that you would only use a limited number of PowerPoint slides (and other media) to reinforce
your presentation.
