5 ways to boost clean energy investment in developing economies

Payne Institute Fellow Bradley Handler, Director Morgan Bazilian, and Michael Hayes write about how for emerging and developing economies to meet their energy development and net-zero climate goals, tens of trillions of dollars in investment will be required. This is significantly more than can be expected to be raised from public funds alone, and thus private capital must provide the difference. Yet there remain many obstacles to the deployment of private capital in clean energy projects in emerging economies, as they can impose additional risk and cost and thus dampen investor interest.  June 29, 2021.
