San Giorgio Group Focus

Effective green finance is critical to the success of low-emissions development. However, significant challenges remain including how to scale up actions to meet global needs, how to design risk-return arrangements to attract public and private capital, and how to disburse climate funds effectively. The San Giorgio Group focus includes:

  • Effective investment: systematic analysis of case studies and tracking of existing green investments
  • Ensuring learning: distil lessons from the evolving financing practices
  • Scaling up: provide insights on how public resources can be spent wisely to mobilize private finance

The San Giorgio Group work focuses on a systematic analysis of project, program, and instrument case studies to identify best practices for effective public and private investment, with a special focus on how risks faced by investors are addressed.

San Giorgio Group Brief: The Role of Public Finance in CSP – Background and Approach to Measuring Effectiveness

January 17, 2014

Many experts and international institutions expect concentrated solar power (CSP) to supply up to 10% of global energy demand by 2050. However, today CSP’s costs remain above alternative sources of power and public finance is needed to bridge this gap: over 98% of the total investment in CSP to date has needed some form of public support. This brief, the first in series of reports on CSP, looks at the global landscape of CSP in terms of markets, technology, financing models, and policies to better understand how to structure effective and cost-effective public policies and investments.
