TOR: Feasibility Assessment for Investment Vehicles
The Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves seeks proposals for a feasibility assessment for possible investment vehicles (debt, risk capital or both) that could merit Alliance support. The outcome of this assessment would be a clear investment thesis, “straw-man” structures, and a defined role and immediate roadmap for the Alliance with regard to such vehicles. The assessment would be based on a detailed understanding of the specific capital needs of sector companies, the current and prospective funding initiatives already in play for the sector, technical feedback from potential capital providers and fund managers, and projected grant funding of the Alliance. The assessment would take a broad view of the investment opportunities in the sector value chain, including, but not limited to, cookstove designers, manufacturers, distributors and marketers; fuel suppliers; and consumer finance providers.
Proposals should be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 6 pm EDT on May 1, 2015.
