Carbon-efficient transport = 75% of the  ...   the criteria saying, “This will be a very useful tool for us to apply with bond issuing clients who want to be recognised for their contribution to a low carbon economy.. ” The project has received funding from the.. Bank of America Foundation.. Working group member Jenny Chase, Solar Analyst at.. Bloomberg New Energy Finance.. , said, “Bond finance is becoming increasingly relevant for solar project financing, particularly in the US.. This criteria will allow investors to incorporate solar bonds into their environmentally mandated portfolios and signal their eagerness to finance a transition to a low carbon economy.. The Solar Technical Working Group convened at the beginning of the year to examine the best way to formulate the eligibility criteria for solar energy.. The group includes experts from:.. Imperial College.. The International Energy Agency (IEA).. SolarPACES research consortium.. The US National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL).. Greenpeace.. Semiconductor Equipment and Materials International (SEMI).. Solarcentury.. The European Photovoltaic Industry Association (EPIA).. Wolfeaware.. Dii (formerly Desertec Industrial Initiative).. Sean Kidney said: ”Solar energy seems like a straightforward fixed asset to include in our definition of a low carbon economy, but we needed to address questions around potential environmental impacts, fossil fuel back up plants included in some plants, and supply chain manufacturing, to make sure we have all bases covered.. For that we needed an expert working group.. We are now seeking public comment on the position the expert group has taken.. The first set of criteria released by the working group for public consultation relates to fixed assets for solar power generation, or for transmission infrastructure to deliver such electricity.. The criteria specifies the amount of non-solar fuel back-up or hybridization allowed for projects such as concentrated solar power plants at 15%.. Criteria for manufacturers in the solar supply chain will follow in the Autumn.. The criteria and background paper are available on the website,.. standards.. climatebonds.. The solar criteria are added to those for wind energy to become the second batch of eligible assets for bond certification.. Work is also underway on.. criteria for low-carbon buildings.. (due in the next few months) and a range of other areas, from transport to biofuels.. is a screening tool for investors and governments to support investment in delivering a Low Carbon Economy.. Bonds complying with the Standard will be certified as ‘Climate Bonds’, a mark that assures their contribution to the delivery of a Low Carbon Economy.. This project was supported by the Bank of America Foundation.. China’s State Council (the Chinese govt s cabinet) has decided to encourage green corporate bonds as part of its financial market reforms.. Bravo! Will the EU and the US follow?.. Posted on 15.. China s State Council, the Chinese Government s cabinet, last week published an important and comprehensive.. plan to maintain a 15% annual growth for low carbon and environmental protection industries.. with an important extra element.. The plan talks about opening up debt instruments as a means of financing growth in this area and proposes:.. Encouraging environment protection companies to issue green securities, including bonds.. Establishing a loan grading system for environment friendly projects.. Allowing private corporations to issue green bonds, or more specifically, bonds for energy saving and environmental protection.. Mandarin readers can.. view the document here.. The document goes on to propose a pilot scheme for corporate green bonds.. Yes yes yes!.. It also proposes improved environmental and energy efficiency standards in a range of areas; much-needed, and these provide the asset definitions for green bonds.. Essentially, bonds backed by assets that qualify, like renewable energy plants or buildings that meet robust carbon footprint standards, should qualify as green bonds.. China’s government has an ongoing focus on energy conservation and renewable energy as a means of contributing to sustainable economic growth.. It s been very diligent at implementing command and control measures in different sectors, and establishing carbon trading pilots.. Bonds are now coming into the mix of broader financial market reforms.. If the focus on green bonds is designed to guide private investment from both the huge savings pool of domestic households and from foreign capital, then a lot of investment could shift very quickly.. Of course the same arguments that have convinced China s Government to pursue this apply equally in the EU and the USA: the need to promote a market for capital products that will finance an urgent policy priority area..

  • Title: Climate Bonds |  About
    Descriptive info: The Climate Bonds Initiative is an investor-focused not-for-profit working to mobilize bond markets for climate change solutions.. Climate change solutions involve a rapid transition to a low-carbon and climate resilient economy.. We aim to reduce the cost of capital for climate related investments, while at the same time seeing the creation of safe and secure investments suitable to the needs of pension and insurance funds.. The current value of the bond markets is.. estimated (by the Bank of International Settlements) to be worth $78 trillion at the end of December.. 2012 [1].. Our goal: $1 trillion of investment flowing each year to low-carbon industries.. The Climate Bonds Initiative is:.. Providing policy models and advice.. Rapid change at very large scale will depend on a close working relationship between government, finance and industry.. The Climate Bonds Initiative is developing policy proposals for all three sectors, including:.. How to boost bank lending to renewables by adapting the $3 trillion covered bonds market to create renewable energy covered bonds.. Delivering on the promise of large-scale energy efficiency (e.. getting to 85% of housing stock within 10 years).. Policy risk insurance for renewable energy bonds, to be provided by a consortium of governments.. Developing trusted standards.. The Climate Bond Standards Board  ...   DNV and Calvert Funds Management.. The Board has already created standards for wind energy bonds and has certified its first bond, soon to be launched.. Solar and energy efficiency investments will be the next to be certified.. Launching demonstration projects.. The aim of these ‘proof-of-concept’ projects is to demonstrate investibility and the potential to finance with Climate Bonds.. For example, working with municipalities in England, the Climate Bonds Initiative is developing a plan for securitization of residential energy efficiency loans with the aim of providing a financing pipeline for the whole country..
