Infrastructure for the recovery – Innovation for de-risking greenfield investment

The recording is now available for the GI Hub and International Finance Corporation (IFC) webinar ‘Infrastructure for the recovery: Innovation for de-risking greenfield investment’, the third in the series New Deals: Funding solutions for the future of infrastructure.

The discussion explored approaches to de-risking greenfield infrastructure and discussed key enabling factors and ESG factors that contributed to the success of two specific projects:

  • The REWA Solar Project in India generated up to USD575 million in private investment in Madhya Pradesh, traditionally a low-income state, and reduced greenhouse gas emissions by 1 million tonnes per year.
  • The Tina River Hydropower project assisted in transitioning the Solomon Islands away from a heavy reliance on imported diesel to renewable energy. This project was the first large-scale PPP in the Solomon Islands, and has helped to encourage further investment in the region while also reducing emissions and power costs.
