Session Brief
We have seen that during the last few years the global investment in renewable energy space remained at around US$300 billion.  Though with decreasing cost of renewable energy technologies, capacity addition has gone up in renewables, globally.  If we have to shift to 1.5 degree scenario, the investment in renewables need to grow exponentially.  
To meet the above challenge, it is necessary to create financing eco-system for renewable energy.  Therefore, this session will discuss bankers’ perspective with regard to allocation and re-cycling of capital investments, innovative financial models, plausible innovative finance framework to reach this goal.  
The bankers’ perspective may vary across the globe depending upon government’s policy, regulatory framework, the stage of growth, maturity level and success of RE in various regions.

•    Bankers’ perspective on policy & regulatory support for banking of RE sector. 
•    Plausible innovative finance framework for RE sector.
