Carbon Markets and Renewable Energy Update

Over the last year, our team has been closely involved with the international UN negotiations on climate change. These negotiations will come to a head in Paris later this year, where it is expected that a new international treaty will be concluded.

Based on the status of UN negotiations to date, as well as "Intended Nationally Determined Contributions" submitted as part of the negotiating process, it has been estimated that there is already 13.5 trillion dollars worth of investments to be made in the energy sector over the next 15 years.

The Changing Climate for Renewable Investments examines what businesses can take away from the current state of play of international climate negotiations. The article gives clients a strong idea of what an international agreement is likely to look like before the conclusion of the Paris round of negotiations and implications for energy investments over the next decade.
