The Global Lighting and Energy Access Partnership (Global LEAP) has secured US$15 million of committed funding for its work—US$10 million over five years has been received from the Italian Ministry for the Environment, Land and Sea, and US$5 million over five years is expected from the U.S. Department of State. The primary implementing agent for the CEM’s energy access work is the International Finance Corporation, which works closely with partners at the World Bank.

In addition to the CEM partners (the United States and Italy), Global LEAP has eight other founding partners—including the World Bank, IFC, and The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) of India —and more than 120 supporting organizations from the private sector and civil society. All are committed to creating sustainable commercial markets for affordable, quality-assured off-grid energy and lighting products and services.
