Financing for Low-carbon Energy Transition: Unlocking the Potential of Private Capital

This book is the first comprehensive assessment of the state of low-carbon investments in Asia, analyzing the rationales, mandates and public–private financing activities. Based on the experiences of several regional initiatives wherein public financing is catalyzing private investments in low-carbon infrastructure, this book proposes a framework that can be used as a tool to identify factors that influence private investment decisions and policy instruments that can scale up private capital.

Placing the Asian economies onto a low-carbon development pathway requires an unprecedented shift in investments. This book addresses this situation by asking questions such as: 

• What is the central role of private finance in achieving the Paris Agreement targets? 
• What key policy levers and risk mitigation can governments use in an effort to unlock the potentials of private capital? 
• How can regionally coordinated actions hold significant promise for scaling up private investments?
