Members encourage development finance institutions to contact GSEP. Full text of the statement: As a group of leading electricity companies participating in the Global Sustainable Electricity Partnership, we believe that the electricity sector has a special role to play in the successful implementation of the Paris Agreement on climate change. Organizations like ours are uniquely placed to collaborate with development finance institutions to help identify the most effective electricity technology investments in the right mix, amount, time and place, in order to deliver lower or zero carbon emissions while taking into account the respective contexts of the countries and the resources available. We are at an opportune moment to work together to build, collaborate, and innovate for a low-carbon future. The final terms of the Paris Agreement correspond to what our respective members have been promoting for years individually and through the Global Sustainable Electricity Partnership. There is a strong alignment between the final terms of the Paris Agreement and the four policy recommendations that we made as a contribution to the 21st Conference of the Parties in an open letter to policymakers to establish stable, long-term policy frameworks, to develop a systemic approach to electricity systems, to promote and engage in public-private partnerships, and to make urgent progress with innovative research and development in order to help secure a better climate, economic growth and development worldwide with electricity.
