    Growing New Energy In The Developing World

    5 ways to boost clean energy investment in developing economies

    Bradley Handler, Morgan Bazilian, Michael Hayes, 29 June 2021 (World Economic Forum)

    “For emerging and developing economies to meet their energy development and net-zero climate goals, tens of trillions of dollars in investment will be required. This is significantly more than can be expected to be raised from public funds alone…[A new report] identified five broad areas that can be addressed to lower these obstacles, and thus help stimulate investment…1. Regulated, transparent power arrangements. Broadly, policies must establish transparency and predictability, which provides confidence for investors in the ability to recover investments in power generation…

    ...2. Specific clean energy/climate incentives. Having an integrated, multi-year energy strategy with short-term targets for retiring fossil fuel plants, if applicable, and building renewable energy helps lay the foundation for conducive policies…3. General business-friendly measures…These include tax policy…4. Innovative financing mechanisms. Financing mechanisms of different types can be useful in mitigating risk, offering additional return potential, or creating more investment opportunities…

    …Examples include 1) synthetic corporate power purchase agreements (CPPAs), which can offer a hedge against a corporate buyer’s fluctuations in power cost while providing demand for renewable energy; and 2) an energy transition mechanism (ETM), which gives investors the opportunity to buy high carbon-emitting assets, retire them and replace them with renewable energy…5. Early risk assumption…Once certain risks in the project had been ameliorated, the sponsor was able to attract additional, or less expensive, capital…Much of the responsibility associated with these five areas falls to government…[Action] can set the stage for fulfilling the world’s sustainable development goals.” click here for more
