Financing Renewable Energy Projects in Asia: Barriers and Solutions

With abundant supplies of a range of renewable energy resources, world-leading technology developers and manufacturers and an increasingly favourable regulatory climate in many jurisdictions, Asia has become a focal point for new renewable energy developments and investments.

Although renewable energy projects in Asia represent a key sustainable development solution with which to meet escalating economic growth and energy demand pressures, such projects face a number of specific financing and operational barriers including, among others, security of resource supply, relatively high technology and capital costs, lack of lender familiarity with relevant technologies and prohibitive transaction costs given the often small scale of projects in the region. This article reviews the key barriers to the development of renewable energy projects in Asia-Pacific jurisdictions, notably the leading markets of China and India, exploring the different policy, regulatory and contractual responses that are being introduced to overcome prevailing project financing barriers.

Technology Transfer and Financing: Issues for Long Term Climate Policy in Developing Countries
© Lexxion Verlagsgesellschaft mbH (10/2009)
Climate change is generally recognized as the central environmental problem facing the globe. Evidence is building that impacts are being felt in the form of melting icecaps in the polar areas and increased variability of temperature, rainfall and storms in virtually all regions. The scientific consensus underpinning the rising political and public recognition of the climate problem has been captured in the recent reports of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). While developed countries are responsible for the bulk of accumulated emissions, developing countries shares have been growing in recent years.

Transitioning from the CDM to a Clean Development Fund
© Lexxion Verlagsgesellschaft mbH (4/2009)
Parties to the UNFCCC must work at Copenhagen toward establishing sound institutions and instruments that will serve as the foundation of international climate cooperation over the coming decades. One of the major tasks will be to assess the performance to date of the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM). The CDM is an emissions trading offset system that allows developed countries to meet their Kyoto targets by investing in emissions reduction projects in developing countries, where greenhouse gas (GHG) abatement is expected to be cheaper than it is in developed countries.

Globalisierungsgestaltung als Schicksalsfrage: Zur Rolle der Ressourcen
© IWARU, FH Münster (2/2009)
Die Welt befindet sich zum Anfang des neuen Jahrhunderts in einer extrem schwierigen Situation. Als Folge der ökonomischen Globalisierung befindet sich das weltökonomische System in einem Prozess zunehmender Entfesselung und Entgrenzung unter teilweise inadäquaten weltweiten Rahmenbedingungen. Das korrespondiert zu dem ingetretenen Verlust des Primats der Politik, weil die politischen Kernstrukturen nach wie vor national oder, in einem gewissen Umfang, kontinental, aber nicht global sind.
