Financing the Energy Transition
In order to keep the average global temperature under 2C the world needs to transition to a low carbon economy. This will involve a major and urgent shift in energy use, involving the rapid growth of renewable energy, development of new technologies such as carbon capture and storage and innovation in energy demand and efficiency.
Whilst the International Energy Agency estimates that this transformation will cost $53tn by 2030, new investment in clean energy actually fell 18% worldwide in 2016 – meaning that new sources of scaled finance are needed to support necessary investment, and bridge the finance gap.
Private and public sectors need to work together to find the solutions to redirect the existing available capital towards clean energy investment from fossil fuel infrastructure and coal-fired generation.
Held ahead of the Sustainable Investment Forum on 19th September 2017, this webinar will unite influential representatives from the finance community and the clean energy sector to discuss the challenges of the financing the energy transition.
