Impact assessment of investment in mitigation

Investments into green technologies and energy infrastructure is a key factor for a low carbon development and the transformation into a green economy. However, it is obvious that the investment volumes needed are widely exceeding the capabilities of public budgets. Therefore, activating private sector investment is essential.

Climate finance does not only reduce fossil fuel energy consumption and GHG emissions but comes with significant co-benefits like additional economic growth, new jobs, improved nature conservation and energy security etc. Most often, the non-energy co-benefits of energy investment are overlooked and substantially underestimated.

We assess and quantify these co-benefits to help decision makers understand the complex effects of climate finance and investment. This way, we improve the basis for important investment decisions. Input-output models, regression analysis as well as multiplier approaches are among the tools for the quantification of the effects.
