GET FiT in Developing Countries

The world faces two interrelated energy challenges that require serious capital mobilization: global CO2 must be stabilized and access to affordable clean energy must be extended to parts of the developing world without grid connection. The scale-up of renewable energies can be the pathway for meeting these goals, complemented by funding efforts for energy efficiency, low carbon energy options, and electricity grid expansion. However, the need for private capital is key. DB Climate Change Advisors and DB Asset Finance & Leasing developed the Global Energy Transfer Feed-in Tariffs (GET FiT) Program, which is a concept framework that supports both the scale-up of renewables and the expansion of energy access in the developing world through the creation of new international Public-private Partnerships. This concept was developed from the standpoint of developers and financiers of renewable energy projects, highlighting the instruments which would help overcome project development barriers and mobilize private capital.
