Webinar I Funding Models for the Energy Transition: Landscapes of Climate Finance

6 November 2019

As countries move forward to implement national climate strategies, National Energy and Climate Plans (NECPs) and more broadly Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), there is an increasing need to understand how to transform investment needs into capital raising and financing plans. This webinar will look at the insights that tracking domestic climate investment and finance can provide to the climate policy and planning process and implementation. The recent results from the 2019 Edition of I4CE’s Landscape of Climate Finance in France and recent work by IKEM on the building sector in Germany will be presented and compared. Best practices in assessment of current investment levels and supporting an increase in sustainable financial flows will be explored as a basic building block of forward-looking analysis and production of investment plans as a part of national climate strategies.

Moderation: Ian Cochran, I4CE – Institute for Climate Economics

– Introduction: New work on climate finance and investment tracking

– Presentation of New Insights:

– Discussion:

  • What are we seeing in terms of key difference between the investment and financing models between countries? What lessons could countries take away?
  • What methodological improvements in recent studies can help improve policymaking and the assessment of the climate finance and investment ‘gap’?

– Conclusions: Current and future developments – where are we at?

  • Current and planned activities focused on the topic of climate finance of the members of the Contact Group

About this Webinar Series

In March 2019, I4CE in partnership with WiseEuropa and NewClimate Institute launched an EU Climate Investment and Finance Tracking Group at an EUKI-supported workshop in Berlin. The objective of this group is to connect and foster the exchange of knowledge and expertise between different types of actors (research, think-tanks, government, among others) on the finance and investment topics related to the low-carbon resilient transformation of European countries. Part of the EUKI-sponsored “Landscape of Climate Finance : Promoting debate on climate finance flows in Central Europe”, the contact group has a specific objective of increasing the participation of representatives from Central and Eastern European countries in these discussions.

To continue the discussions begun in Berlin in March 2019, the project consortium proposes the organization of two webinars in November and December 2019. This corresponds with the publication of new research related to landscape tracking work in France, Germany and Czechia.

This series of webinars is financed by the European Climate Initiative (EUKI) of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU). It is the overarching goal of the EUKI to foster climate cooperation within the European Union (EU) in order to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions. The opinions put forward in this workshop are the sole responsibility of the organizers and do not necessarily reflect the views of the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU).

    One Planet Summit: three notes of caution on Green Budgeting

    A little less than a year ago, France organized the One Planet Summit and, among many commitments, joined the OECD’s Green Budgeting initiative, along with Mexico. A first assessment of these commitments was held on 26th September in New York, and the next steps on this particular initiative unveiled. This includes case studies to assess the potential scope and limitations of green budgeting in all OECD countries, including France.

    Estimating greenhouse gas emissions from food consumption: methods and results

    A large share of global greenhouse gases (GHG) emissions comes from food production and consumption. Measuring the total footprint of world diets remains however a challenge. The main reason is the lack of harmonization on consumption based emission accounting methods. While a few estimates are available, their results are often hardly comparable, may be rather […]

    “Green budgeting”: paths to creating real added value

    Few green budgeting initiatives have led to concrete reforms or revisions of priority investments. How can we move from simple theoretical exercises to concrete action for the environment? This is the question asked by Sébastien Postic of I4CE, Oskar Lecuyer of AFD and Jennifer Doherty-Bigara of the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB).
