Shaping the energy transition through global investment and ambitious IPA development
We Are Live In
About the Event
Hosted by fDi Intelligence, the Renewable Energy Forum will bring together leading renewable energy producers, financiers, and investment promotion agencies to discuss the role of foreign direct investment in the shift to renewable and sustainable energy resources. IPAs, cities, governments, and international jurisdictions will review opportunities for making long-term investments in renewable energy projects and their positive outcomes, whilst assessing the scope for meeting ESG expectations for investors.
The sector is maturing at pace, with growing pools of capital injected into ambitious projects, in which solar and wind energy are used to produce hydrogen and other gases. Overall, FDI in the sector had another strong year in 2021, mobilising six times as much capital as the oil and gas sector as oil firms swap hydrocarbons for green assets to meet net-zero targets.
Industry leaders from across the FDI and clean energy value chain will meet to discuss how IPAs can shift their focus to increasing sustainable investments in renewable technologies within their jurisdictions. The digital event will also examine how the energy transition is changing the dynamics of the global investment landscape, and which clean energy technologies offer the greatest opportunities for both jurisdictions and investors amidst a competitive market for sustainable assets.
