Making the Market

The Microgrid Investment Accelerator (MIA) is a first of its kind blended capital finance facility that provides catalytic financing directly where it's needed most: to microgrid project developers bringing clean energy solutions to un- and underserved communities around the globe. The facility will test the commercial opportunity for microgrids and demonstrate how concessionary finance can unlock progressively larger proportions of private capital as risks are discovered, priced, and mitigated. MIA will initially provide targeted financing to developers in India, Africa and Indonesia, but seeks to develop global investment capability.

MIA will blend different types of capital and offer a streamlined point of access for developers with different financial needs, including provision of equity, debt, financing for credit guarantees and currency hedges, etc. MIA will work with other financing and implementation partners to build the ecosystem necessary to bring the next generation of microgrid entrepreneurs from start up to successful enterprise.
