On June 19 2018, organised by the Institute for for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis (IEEFA), the Green Finance Initiative (GFI) hosted a workshop on the renewable energy infrastructure opportunity for UK pension funds. The aim of the workshop was to increase understanding around barriers to the financing of renewables, and to identify opportunities. The workshop built on an earlier event in October 2017, which introduced UK local government and corporate pension funds to renewable energy infrastructure, and a related research report which reviewed the characteristics of unlisted renewable energy infrastructure, published in November 2017 by IEEFA, HSBC Global Asset Management and GFI.
This workshop was structured in a way to allow potential investors in renewable infrastructure assets to discuss four key areas of interest with specialist asset managers. These four themes were: the attractions of renewable energy as an asset class; how to address deal flow challenges; expected risk-adjusted returns; and renewables markets beyond the UK and beyond subsidies. This briefing is structured according to the same themes, and summarises the outcome of the discussion.
