Description of the contract

Through this “Policy Risk Study”, the UK Government aims to develop evidence-based recommendations for (1) whether and (2) how ‘policy risk’ in renewable energy investments can be effectively tackled by the international donor community in order to foster greater private sector investment. The findings and recommendations of this study will be presented to the international donor community with a view to garner support and funding for any recommended actions. A robust evidence base and careful, thorough analysis will be essential in gaining the confidence of this community. Any intervention must work within the constraints of OECD DAC Official Development Assistance. OBJECTIVE OF PLANNED INTERVENTION The headline objectives of this study are to: 1. Identify the policy and offtaker payment risks associated with climate finance investments in developing countries and assess to what extent intervention to mitigate these risks would unlock greater private sector investment; 2. Identify and assess the existing public instruments which address these risks – assess the extent to which these instruments currently do, and potentially could, meet the challenges presented by the policy and offtaker payment risks identified in objective 1; and 3. Identify, develop and assess options for public-private-partnership models that could meet the challenges presented by the policy and offtaker payment risks identified in objective 1, including the building of models for (a) a pilot P-P-P mechanism for two countries (b) a Long-term Broader Risk Pool.
