Mobilising Institutional Capital for Renewable Energy - Roundtable in Asia

23 November 2017 |Norton Rose Fulbright Office, Singapore

The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) and Norton Rose Fulbright are jointly hosting an interactive roundtable discussion on “Mobilising Institutional Capital for Renewable Energy - The Investors’ Perspective”.

Building on the findings from IRENA’s 2016 publication “Unlocking renewable energy investment: the role of risk mitigation and structured finance”, which highlighted the need to attract institutional investors to the sector, IRENA is now conducting a follow-up study with the objective of providing feedback and practical recommendations to governments, other policy makers and industry stakeholders.

As part of our efforts to better understand the investment landscape, status and practices of institutional investors, as well as main barriers they face in the renewables sector, IRENA is carrying out a series of roundtables to obtain direct input from key players in this field. Following the first such roundtable held earlier this month in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, IRENA’s second roundtable will be in Singapore and focus on the South-Asian market and practical ways in which investment capital can be scaled up in renewable energy in this region.

Roundtable participants will include Asia-based institutional investors, asset managers, project developers, advisers and representatives of public finance institutions.

Input from the roundtable will be aggregated, analysed and feed into recommendations of IRENA’s upcoming report “Mobilising institutional capital for renewable energy” (tentative title).
