— "Financing is the key to achieving these objectives," said World Bank Group President Kim. "To reach our goals for access to energy, energy efficiency, and renewable energy, we need to mobilize an additional $600-$800 billion a year from now to 2030."
— The Bank helps countries find renewable energy solutions wherever possible. Projects include support for concentrating solar plants in North Africa, off-grid household solar in Mongolia, wind farms in Turkey, and geothermal power in Kenya.
