Investing in a Low-Carbon Energy Future in the Developing World

In its new report, Investing in a Low-Carbon Energy Future in the Developing World, the World Business Council for Sustainable Development explores how governments and business can work together to solve these challenges by aligning policies, mechanisms and tools with the commercial conditions under which a business typically invests, in order to scale up private investment.

The ability of a technology or infrastructure project to attract investment depends heavily on commercial returns. The report provides a clear commercial business perspective by addressing how and why business invests, investment risk profiles, and the incentives needed in order to scale up investment in new technology research, development, demonstration and deployment.
