Private Sector Engagement

The funds provided through official development assistance (ODA) are not sufficient for ensuring universal energy access. The current level of commercial investment in renewable energy in developing countries is growing, but it still falls short of the total volume needed. Although many of the markets in question are immature, the present and future needs for clean and affordable energy represent a considerable market opportunity. Climate finance instruments represent an untapped potential for investments in renewable energy in developing countries. Private sector enterprises could also profit from public–private business models for investments in renewable energy (RE) and energy efficiency (EE).  

How

One of the main obstacles for commercial investments in renewable energy in developing countries is the fact that the investment’s perceived risk is often greater than the investment’s anticipated return. This makes investments unprofitable and hence unlikely. The “enabling environment” is not good enough to provide incentives for sufficient investments. In essence, this explains the gap between necessary investments and actual investments in renewable energy in developing countries. In order to encourage investments, there are two highly important issues that should be focused on: To reduce the risks and/or to increase the returns.

Energy+ will work in specific areas to address these two overarching issues of risks and returns. Energy+ promotes public–private partnerships and the strategic use of public funds to leverage commercial investments through the development of enabling environments. This is one of the keys to unlocking developing countries’ green growth potential.
