Derisking Renewable Energy Investment (DREI) introduces an innovative framework to assist policymakers in developing countries to cost-effectively promote investment in renewable energy.
The DREI framework systematically identifies the barriers and associated risks which can hold back private sector investment in renewable energy. It then assists policymakers to put in place packages of targeted public interventions to address these risks. Each public intervention acts in one of three ways: either reducing, transferring or compensating for risk. The overall aim is to cost-effectively achieve a risk-return profile that catalyses private sector investment at scale. The end objective is reliable and affordable renewable energy solutions in developing countries.
