Winrock International’s clean energy programs expand access to energy services that improve health, education and women’s status, and increase incomes through market development, community empowerment, and public-private partnerships. Winrock’s work focuses on building the capabilities of communities, project developers, financing institutions and government organizations around the globe, and supports the investment conditions necessary to fully realize the opportunities modern energy brings.

This paper identifies areas of cooperation that will help companies achieve their sustainability goals and support countries’ need to lower emissions from land use.
 

This portrait of To Thi Loi is part of the Vietnam Clean Energy Program’s series on "women champions" in the Vietnamese construction sector. The series features women who have made strides in this male-dominated field, coming from diverse backgrounds and with different interests, but bound together by strong work ethics, love of country, a strong belief in themselves, and a passion for their work.

This handbook provides information on POME-to-energy technology and its benefits, as well as a how-to guide for those interested in conducting a feasibility study.

Winrock International has joined the U.S. Power Working Group dedicated to helping Indonesia ramp up its power capacity, while supporting the island nation in its efforts to increase the supply of energy from renewable sources. Indonesian President Joko Widodo announced the country's ambitious goal in April, with the additional production capacity essential to the Indonesia's efforts to meet electricity demands as well as its targeted economic growth

The Vietnam Clean Energy Program (VCEP) is a five-year effort to accelerate Vietnam’s transition to climate resilient, low emission sustainable development. VCEP works with the government to reduce poverty, ensure private sector-led growth, as well as energy access and security. The project supports clean energy development by increasing the use of renewable energy technologies and energy efficient practices in the building sector.

Winrock's USAID-funded Developing a Sustainable Cookstove Sector (DSCS) program is contributing to the development of sustainable cookstove markets that will lead to wider adoption of clean, efficient cooking solutions. DSCS is strengthening private sector distribution of high-quality fuel-efficient stoves, increasing availability of local finance for cookstove enterprises and end users, and expanding access to a broader consumer base.

The Alliance for Mindanao and Multi-Regional Renewable/Rural Energy Development-Phase III (AMORE III) program strengthens modern rural energy services through public-private partnerships that deliver household electrification, school electrification to improve education, and renewable energy workforce development in the Philippines.

In March, the USAID-funded Clean Energy Investment project (CEI), in cooperation with the Association of Renewable Energy Producers and International Finance Corporation Balkan Renewable Energy Program hosted the fifth quarterly Renewable Energy Stakeholders’ Forum in Skopje, Macedonia. Presentations and discussions focused on legal and practical improvements to renewable energy investment procedures, and the potential for investment in photo-voltaic panels.

Navigating the Climate Economy: Investing for Growth and Resilience is a monthly discussion series hosted by USAID’s Climate Economic Analysis for Development, Investment and Resilience (CEADIR) project. This month, a panel of speakers from USAID and CEADIR partners — including Winrock's Bob O'Sullivan — will be featured on April 14 to explore financial innovations for funding sustainable land-use activities.

At a meeting of the Working Group to Address Increasing Adoption of Improved Cookstoves, co-hosted by the USAID-funded WASHplus and TRAction projects, several factors affecting successful cookstove adoption were identified. Recently, Winrock's Elisa Derby contributed to a peer-reviewed article designed to address the most critical considerations identified at the meeting. The article, "Maximizing the benefits of improved cookstoves: moving from acquisition to correct and consistent use," was published in the August issue of the journal, Global Health: Science and Practice.
