Renewable Energy

Access to renewable energy helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions by decreasing dependence on fossil fuels, particularly coal plants and diesel generators. While the renewable energy sector offers an attractive investment opportunity, there are barriers to investment. 

Through our offices in India and Indonesia, we have significantly influenced government policy related to renewable energy. Our team in India works with the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy, the Ministry of Finance, and other policymaker to increase investment to India’s renewable energy targets. We do this through a three-pillar approach: first, understand potential investors and the barriers they face; second, explore policy solutions to these barriers; and third, develop financial instrument solutions to these barriers.
