ADB Clean Energy Bonds 2016

ADB’s assistance to the energy sector has been evolving to focus more on the sustainable development goals, specifically climate change. This is the fifth year in a row where clean energy investments have been above the $2 billion annual target. These investments will result in 618 megawatts of additional renewable energy capacity, 4.5 terawatt-hours electricity savings, and 22 million tons of carbon dioxide avoided when the projects are up and running.

By 2020, ADB targets to invest $6 billion in climate finance: $4 billion for mitigation (mostly for clean energy projects) and $2 billion for adaptation.
