Webinar: Economic Instruments to Leverage Clean Energy Investment
There is widespread recognition that the bulk of the investments needed to meet the Paris goals and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will have to come from private investors aiming to make commercial returns.
Many of the needed investments are not currently considered attractive investment opportunities. How can those opportunities be made sufficiently attractive for private investors to dedicate their funds at the scale needed for the necessary energy transition?
This webinar will look at the strong role of economic instruments in creating incentives to help de-risk the needed investments. IISD experts will focus on specific fiscal policies in three major developing economies and discuss the extent to which they support—or detract from—Nationally Determined Contribution and SDG achievement, and the emerging energy transition:
- India – Goods and Services Tax (GST) reform
- Mexico – Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) market
- Indonesia – Fossil fuel subsidy reforms
