Investing in a low carbon future with Climate Change Capital
The nature and scope of the carbon investment market is changing rapidly as the cost of carbon emissions is gradually integrated into the world economy through a variety of policies in different regions. In our view, the period 2010 to 2020 will see the expansion of carbon pricing in a wider international compliance regime, the strengthening and convergence of policies on renewable energy, energy efficiency, technology transfer and energy security and the beginning of mandatory de-carbonisation regimes in major economies like the USA and China. The twin drivers of energy demand and climate change will see massive investment in clean energy infrastructure worldwide, up to $45 trillion as estimated by the International Energy Agency.
To date, most carbon finance transactions have been structured as offtake contracts. Increasingly, the value of emission reduction streams is integrated into the financing of clean infrastructure projects. Climate Change Capital's Carbon Finance Funds, managed by the Carbon Finance Team are applying a broad range of financing structures to gain exposure not only to the carbon price, but also to the value of the underlying infrastructure assets that generate emission reductions or benefit from other policy instruments encouraging low-carbon investment.
