Scaling Up Renewable Energy Investment in Emerging Markets

Recognising that investment levels in renewable energy are still far from what is needed to decarbonise the energy sector, the IRENA Coalition for Action has focused its joint efforts during the last year on the issue of scaling up of renewable energy investment - both private and community based. Through its Business and Investors Group (co-chaired by Bruce Douglas, SolarPower Europe Deputy CEO and Co-chair of the Global Solar Council and Steve Sawyer, GWEC CEO) the Coalition just launched a white paper on scaling up investment in emerging markets as input to the first Public-Private Dialogue at IRENA's General Assembly in Abu Dhabi.
