Can the IFIs Catalyze More Effective Financing for Renewable Energy in Emerging Markets?

Date: 
Thu, Jan 23, 2014 9:00am - 11:00am
Location: 
International Finance Corporation (IFC), Washington, DC

This roundtable discussion will bring together high-level industry leaders, officials from the international financial institutions (IFIs), and other experts regularly involved in renewable energy financing to outline emerging trends in the IFIs’ and private sector investment strategies, to explore ways to overcome existing investment challenges, and to discuss how to improve future financing opportunities. Improvements in coordination and information-sharing may help enhance return on investment, lower risks and costs, and expand market and sustainable development opportunities.

The event will feature an opening discussion between Joseph Brandt, CEO of Contour Global, and Bernie Sheahan, Director of the Infrastructure and Natural Resources Department at the IFC. Following the roundtable, we will also host a panel on Doing Business with the IFIs.
