Access to Energy Fund

The Access to Energy Fund (AEF) was established by the Dutch Government and FMO to fund private sector projects that create sustainable access to energy services. By providing financing for projects involved in the generation, transmission or distribution of energy, the Fund aims to ultimately connect 3 million people in developing countries by 2015. FMO will play a significant role in establishing the necessary conditions required to boost economic development and ultimately alleviate poverty. Total committed capital to the Fund is €102 million. The AEF can provide equity financing, subordinated debt/senior loans and it can also selectively play a role in the development of new projects by providing early stage risk capital.
