BlackRock Alternatives’ Climate Finance Partnership (CFP), a flagship public-private finance vehicle that seeks to accelerate the flow of capital into emerging-market climate infrastructure, has partnered with CleanTech Global Renewables, a renewable-energy developer in the Philippines.

Under the new partnership, CFP will support CleanTech’s target to develop 1 gigawatt of solar capacity in the Philippines by 2026. The project is anticipated to improve electricity access for at least 125,000 households across the country, help prevent 1.3 million metric tons of greenhouse-gas emissions over its lifetime and save 3.5 million metric tonnes of water.

This represents CFP’s first investment in Asia Pacific and BlackR
