Clean Energy Investment in Emerging Economies: Progress, Risks and Opportunities

Meeting energy needs and policy priorities in the electricity sectors of emerging economies will depend on mobilising much higher levels of capital – with higher degrees of private sector participation – for renewables, energy efficiency and flexible infrastructure. Attracting adequate capital at an affordable cost of finance will be contingent on addressing the risks that impact the financial and operational sustainability of utilities and the bankability of projects, strengthening the provision of long-term finance, and encouraging integrated approaches that take into account demand-side solutions.

Building on insights from the recent IEA Southeast Asia and Africa Energy Outlooks, this webinar will discuss persistent risks and present opportunities identified to reduce financing costs and attract more capital for clean energy in selected emerging markets.
