Improving access to clean and renewable energy

To help achieve the Sustainable Development Goal of providing universal access to energy by 2030, renewable energy is a viable option for many rural areas yet to be connected to the grid. GPOBA's funding for renewable energy projects amount to half of the total portfolio in the energy sector.
GPOBA is a global partnership program in the World Bank Group. Through a diverse portfolio of projects, GPOBA funds, designs, demonstrates and documents output-based aid approaches (OBA) to improve the delivery of basic services in  developing  countries. Large development projects too often fail to include the very poor, and GPOBA is dedicated to making sure the poor and marginalized  have access to  electricity, water, sanitation, health care, education and other basic services necessary for growth and opportunity.
