This report, in partnership with UL, looks at the steps that should be taken to improve investor confidence in emerging markets with a view to kick-starting proposed projects that may be struggling to gain traction.

The energy transition is being held up by a lack of investable projects in emerging markets. Whether it is an inability on the part of governments in some markets to run large-scale tenders, consent projects expediently or a lack of political support for such moves, getting projects off the ground can be extremely challenging. Other obstacles blocking the development of projects in some emerging markets include difficulties connecting to the grid due to long distances between renewable energy sources and load centers.

Meanwhile, developing local supply chains for projects can also be challenging. However, as a result, funds have identified supply chains as a significant investment opportunity due to the fact that emerging markets often lack vital manufacturing facilities.

This report will address these issues in more depth while also identifying the steps that should be taken to address these problems with a view to kick-starting proposed projects that may be struggling to gain traction.

The report is based on a Wind Investment Boardroom session that we ran with headline sponsor UL on 22nd September. Thank you to the panellists for their contribution:

  • Lisa Pinsley, Director and Head of Africa Energy Infrastructure, Actis
  • Rael McNally, Director, Emerging Markets, BlackRock
  • Seamus McCabe, Vice President, Green Investment Group
