Closing the Financing Gap: How to Pay for the Global Clean Energy Transition
12 PM EDT
Section of Environment, Energy, and Resources, and the Section's Energy, Infrastructure, Siting, and Reliability Committee, the Renewable, Alternative, and Distributed Energy Resources Committee, and the Energy Markets and Finance Committee.
Globally, over the next 25 years the world is falling more than $20 trillion short of the total clean energy investment needed to avert climate disaster. This also means that economic, cost-saving clean energy projects are left unbuilt. There are gaps between abundant capital and individual projects. Solutions such as Green Banks are meant to connect capital to projects and mitigate risk. Emerging to fill these gaps are several types of specialized legal entities entering into different types of public-private partnerships to facilitate project development on an economically sustainable basis. This program will explicate their structural differences and clarify the types of legal issues which arise in their structuring, the types of transaction which they undertake, and special considerations in dealing with different types of clean energy projects.
