LUNCHEON ADDRESS: FINANCING INFRASTRUCTURE AND THE EMERGENCE OF ‘GREEN FINANCE’

One of the constraints in building gas infrastructure is securing finance on a long-term basis. A challenge in developing markets is that these long-term projects rely so heavily on governmental support. If a government has no track record or history of entering into these types of long-term contracts, then there is a hesitation among private investors and bankers to support the project. Added to this, banks are now starting to divest more into renewables as we see an emergence of ‘Green Finance’. This lunch session explores the changing dynamics of financial markets and how will they impact the development of new gas infrastructure.
