Financing the Energy Transition in Asia's Emerging Economies

17 Jul 2020   |   1600-1800 hrs IST

On the eve of the CEEW Centre for Energy Finance's (CEEW-CEF) first anniversary, we are delighted to have Mr Amitabh Kant, CEO, NITI Aayog, delivering the keynote address at this edition of Parishad. The webinar will also feature the launch of two CEEW-CEF studies on renewable energy investments in Indonesia and Sri Lanka

Many emerging economies in Asia such as India, Indonesia, Sri Lanka and Vietnam have high RE deployment ambitions. However, unlike India, Indonesia and Sri Lanka have not been able to attract investments at the scale envisioned. A range of regulatory and market-related challenges have constrained the pace of capacity addition in the two economies. Systematically addressing these challenges is essential to advancing their respective energy transitions.

The webinar will highlight the key risks and critical interventions needed to accelerate the energy transitions in emerging economies, and share lessons from market leaders like India. These insights would be valuable to policymakers, investors, and other stakeholders interested in these specific RE markets and the broader Asia region.
