In continuation to the launch of the Community of Practice (CoP) on Grid Renewable Energy and Transport- Clean Mobility, the Asia LEDS Partnership takes pleasure in announcing the launch of the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDC) Finance Community of Practice on ‘Accelerating investment into clean energy across Asia’.
The NDC Finance CoP will initially cover learning and technical collaboration on following topics:
- Lowering the cost and risk of capital – identify strategies and interventions to lower the cost and risk of capital for renewable energy finance. Tentative topics planned to be covered are blended capital, green banks, green bonds, and low carbon project preparation and financing strategies
- Attracting private finance through smart policy and enabling environments – through regulations, permitting, pricing and other financial incentives
In 2018, the activities of the Finance CoP will focus on peer learning, expert assistance and knowledge exchange through discussions, country visits, workshops, seminars, case studies etc. Please also see the FWG Asia community of practice_concept note for additional information.
Suitable persons from national (Ministry of finance, energy, environment, National energy commissions, etc.) and sub-national governments, private sector, utilities, academia and international organisations that design, finance and implement renewable energy deployment can be nominated. Please complete these questions to submit your nominations by the 5th of April, 2018.
The ALP will be issuing a community of practice on sub-national integration shortly. To read more about the ALP’s Energy and Transport Community of practice that were launched recently please click Grid Scale Renewable Energy and Clean Mobility.
