Approaching Energy Access Differently


The Clean Energy Solutions Center (the Solutions Center) helps governments design and adopt policies and programs that support the deployment of transformational low-carbon technologies. The Solutions Center offers no-cost clean energy policy assistance through a global network of more than 30 experts for government policy makers and the technical institutes assisting them, online training and webinars, and peer-to-peer learning to help countries tailor solutions to their needs and foster international collaboration on policy innovations. The Solutions Center also serves as a knowledge portal for online clean energy resources—including policy best practices, data, and analysis tools—and shares these resources with a global forum of energy experts, policy makers, and other stakeholders in partnership with more than 35 leading international and regional clean energy organizations.

Key Accomplishment

The Solutions Center has responded to more than 130 requests for policy assistance from nearly 70 countries through its Ask-An Expert service. This policy assistance is making an impact. Through Solutions Center assistance, Caribbean Community (CARICOM) member states set aggressive renewable energy targets in their Energy Policy: 20% in 2017, 28% in 2022, and 47% in 2027.


The Clean Energy Solutions Center seeks to become a trusted first-stop resource for clean energy policy makers.

  • The Solutions Center is designed to act as a clearinghouse of high-quality clean energy policy and deployment information and to provide in-depth expert assistance, peer forums, and trainings through a virtual platform, bringing a broad network of policy makers together remotely to work on clean energy solutions.
  • The Solutions Center is also designed to be flexible, developing and evolving according to the needs of its users. Regular feedback is encouraged to achieve these goals.
