Bloomberg New Energy Finance (BNEF) Reports and News

Bloomberg New Energy Finance (BNEF) is different from the Bloomberg Terminals in the library. BNEF doesn't provide academic subscriptions, which means the only option is to get a single-user subscription that also requires a finger print reader for the authorized individual to use the platform.
