Emerging Economies

The CEEW Centre for Energy Finance (CEEW-CEF) leads The Council’s initiative on emerging economies, with a particular emphasis on advancing affordable finance towards their low-carbon transition. CEEW-CEF has conducted and published assessments of risks and opportunities associated with accelerating clean energy investments in Indonesia, South Africa and Sri Lanka. In addition, the Centre has developed a bespoke solution — the Viet Nam Grid Integration Guarantee — to address curtailment risk perceptions and thereby facilitate cost-competitive renewable energy deployment in the country.
