GLRPPR Sector Resource: Power Factor: Institutional Investors’ Policy Priorities Can Bring Energy Efficiency to Scale

Title:
Power Factor: Institutional Investors’ Policy Priorities Can Bring Energy Efficiency to Scale

Abstract:
Research shows climate change could impose a multi-trillion dollar burden on the global economy and contribute ten percent of overall risk within institutional investment portfolios. Institutional investors, who manage tens of trillions of dollars globally, are actively looking for ways to mitigate these climate-related risks. Energy efficiency offers one such opportunity for institutional investors to manage the risks of climate change while earning a competitive rate of return on their investment. Industry analysts have estimated the potential energy efficiency investment opportunity in the hundreds of billions of dollars.However, under current market conditions, institutional investors are largely unable to finance energy efficiency projects at the scale necessary to address climate change or to meet their own internal investment criteria. At sufficient size, a market for energy efficiency loans could present an attractive investment opportunity for institutions. Free registration required to download the report.
