  • Onshore wind
  • Offshore Wind
  • Biomass
  • Portfolio Refinancings
  • Etc.
  • Lessons in Europe
  • Regulation is key to Renewable Energy Tariffs/Businesses
  • - Debt oriented tariffs = Germany, Spain, Denmark, Italy CIP 6
  • - Equity oriented tariffs = UK ROCs, Italy CVs
  • Project Debt Is Widely Available
  • - Skills in the banking sector - familiarity with regulatory issues
  • - Capital allocated by banks - even post Basel 2!
  • Returns are “Infrastructure Returns”
  • - 12%-18% IRR is proven to be acceptable to institutions
  • - 5%-12% IRR plus tax breaks was briefly a retail product where capital markets were reasonably developed
  • Appearances vs RealityRenewable Energyin Emerging MarketsInternational Mezzanine Finance$10 Million Deal with Nordic Hydropower and EDFGEF and IFC – Micro-finance for PVDeal Example: Barclays Bank of Kenya Barclays Bank of Kenya co-invests with PVMTI to provide loans to multiple Kenyan Savings and Credit Co-Operatives (“SACCO’s”) in partnership with KUSCCO, an umbrella organisation representing over 1,500 SACCO’s. SACCO’s will on-lend funds to their members to purchase PV systems, which will be supplied by Solagen and other quality PV companies.Lessons in Emerging Markets
  • Government Regulation is key to Renewable Energy Tariffs
  • - Tariffs may be new, changing or not widely available
  • Project Debt Is Less Widely Available
  • - Skills exist in the banking sector
  • - Regulatory support not as developed
  • - Capital allocations vary - country debt risk ratings, etc.
  • Returns are “Infrastructure Returns” and less!
  • - 12%-18% IRR less proven to be acceptable to institutions given additional risks
  • - 5%-12% IRR not acceptable to traditional investors
  • Bridging the Market – Grant Gap!
  • Technology Transfer
  • Applications – not R&D
  • Long term, market forces are more sustainable
  • Regulation can support investment
  • Applications Require Private Funding:
  • IRR levels create “market funding gap”
  • ODA funds:
  • Country Co-financing – process is heavy as you know!
  • Even risk being drawn into “debt relief” debate
  • Largely focussed on non-energy issues
  • May need to be given more “leverage and efficiency”
  • Developing Market Funding SourcesType of InvestmentExisting Funding ProgrammesPublic sector dealPrivate sector dealDebtWorld Bank (IBRD, IDA)Regional Development Banks (ADB)EIBGovernment Aid AgenciesDevelopment BanksEIB, IFCRegional Development BanksGovernment Aid AgenciesDevelopment Banks:Export credit agenciesKFW, FMO, JDA, etc. EquityNot applicable to public sector DEG, FMO and IFC *1]Few others except through funds(Frmer CDC – now private as “Actis”)GrantKfWGovernment Aid Ag’ys/Dev.’t BanksWorld BankKfWGovernment Aid Ag’ys/Dev.’t Banks:Economic Cooperation Funding [1]* DEG, FMO and IFC usually invest in minimums of €5-15 million, not in smaller deals.Key Issues Addressed by the PCI
  • Technology Transfer
  • Applications – not R&D
  • Only market forces are sustainable long term
  • Regulation can support investment
  • ODA funds:
  • Miss the Energy-Poverty Link
  • Need to recognise the oil bill impact = debt bill impact
  • May need to be given more “leverage and efficiency”
  • Points remain:
  • IRR levels create “market funding gap”
  • “Patient Capital Initiative”Global Renewable Energy Fund of FundsPresented at the World Conference for Renewable EnergyBonn, June 2004In Support Of The Johannesburg Renewable Energy CoalitionPublic – Private Partnership Process
  • 2003 - Private Sector Informs Public Sector (JREC context)

  • Subfund proposal solicitations
  • Where (policy), How much (leverage), Patience (Deal Terms)
