This brief demonstrates that the energy transition in the countries in which energy demand is accelerating is constrained by availability and affordability of finance. It examines the demand for capital in emerging economies and their current political economy and investment landscape.

This report discusses the risks constraining renewable energy (RE) investments in Indonesia. Part of a series, which assesses barriers to the flow of capital into RE markets in emerging economies, it focuses on solar and wind energy, which are the major drivers of global RE investments.

This report, part of a series which assesses the obstacles to the flow of capital into renewable energy markets in emerging economies, investigates risks considered important by stakeholders in South Africa’s renewable energy market.

This study presents a proposed solution to the risk of renewable energy (RE) curtailment – a grid integration guarantee (GIG), which offers cover against tail-end curtailment risk with market-reflective pricing.

This report presents the findings of a survey undertaken in east and central Delhi to gauge how residential consumers perceive rooftop solar technology, their levels of awareness, and their willingness to accept new business models. The report also highlights the drivers and barriers to the adoption of rooftop solar in India.

This feasibility study presents the structure and legal framework of a business design facility (the Facility) for clean energy projects in India. It addresses the urgent need for increasing the flow and affordability of private capital into clean energy markets in emerging economies.

India is undergoing a major energy transition. However, constraints on access to capital — both in terms of adequacy and affordability — are impeding the pace and efficiency of this transition.

In July 2018, the Government of India imposed a two-year safeguard duty on solar cells and modules, in an attempt to protect domestic manufacturing. This policy brief discusses the impact of that duty on the business prospects of manufacturers.

Installing rooftop solar panels, or even buying power from a community rooftop solar plant, may make electricity bill payments cheaper, according to a recent study.

In order to accelerate the global transition to clean energy, it is important to systematically identify the risks associated with RE deployment and address these risks through a combination of policy and market-based interventions.
