Danish Climate Investment Fund

The Danish Climate Investment Fund (KIF) has a dual purpose. Firstly, it will contribute to reducing climate impacts and global warming by investing in projects that will reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Secondly, the fund will invest in projects that will promote the transfer of Danish technology, thereby supporting Denmark’s leading position in this expanding market in developing countries and emerging markets. Its technology/sector focus is on small hydropower, geothermal, wind, solar, and biomass energy. The Fund offers risk capital and advice for climate investments in developing countries and emerging markets in Asia, Africa, Latin America and parts of Europe.
