The Power of the Productive Use of Energy – an impact investment frontier

The latest results from the PREO programme: demonstrating the business and impact case for investment in the productive use of energy (PUE)

Stimulating demand for off-grid renewable energy through PUE applications is a critical way to support sustainable business opportunities, grow local economies and reduce reliance on fossil fuels.

The report outlines the first key findings emerging from the PREO programme, exploring examples from funded projects in the e-mobility, healthcare and off-grid cooling for food sectors.

Six projects supported by PREO are showcased in the report – highlighting the value of investment in productive equipment and appliances to strengthen the investment case for sustainable energy infrastructure in Africa.
