Overview
The Climate Policy Initiative engages in analysis and policy design to facilitate incremental improvement in energy finance policy, as well as a long-term vision and trajectory that could stimulate more systemic industry reform. Its four objectives are (a) to reform energy markets for the low-carbon future, (b) employ finance as catalyst, (c) smooth energy transitions by addressing issues around assets whose value will be "stranded" in a low-carbon world, and developing new models of growth for emerging markets. The Initiative relies on top-notch analysis to build a larger network of business and government finance officials that will ultimately help create a system of climate finance that will implement the Paris Agreement.

Grants to this Grantee
for general operating support  
In December 2015, world leaders reached a historic climate agreement at COP21 in Paris, sending a clear signal to governments and businesses to accelerate their efforts to decarbonize their economies, supply chains, and business models. However, investment in low-carbon, climate-resilient activities is far short of the need to meet internationally agreed goals. Climate Policy Initiative (CPI), through financial analysis and convening, helps ensure that policymakers and decision makers have the knowledge and tools to spend more money, more wisely, to address climate change, while achieving sustainable development goals.
for the Energy Transitions Commission India program  
Climate Policy Initiative is working to develop a roadmap to a flexible, low-carbon Indian electricity system. This grant will assess flexibility needs for the Indian electricity system under higher renewable energy penetrations over the next five to 25 years. The project will evaluate potential resources and policy and market solutions that will help India develop the electricity system flexibility needed to achieve and extend renewable energy goals. This work will support the India Energy Transitions Commission and will be done in conjunction with work from The Energy Research Institute of India (TERI) and the National Renewable Energy Lab (NREL).
for general operating support  
The Climate Policy Initiative is a think tank that addresses climate change through three program areas. First, research on how finance can be a catalyst for climate mitigation. Second, how the world can smoothly transition away from fossil fuels. Third, how to reform energy markets in a post carbon world and find new models for sustainable growth in emerging markets.
