Sheraton Hanoi Hotel
This regional workshop is organized by the Asia LEDS Partnership and hosted by the Government of Vietnam through the Ministry of Planning and Investment (MPI), co-hosted by the Ministry of Industry and Trade (MOIT). Workshop sponsors include the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), LEDS Global Partnership, and the European Chamber of Commerce in Vietnam.
Developing sustainable energy solutions will require the identification, design, and implementation of both policy measures and financial instruments that catalyze the deployment of grid-connected, renewable energy sources. This regional workshop will convene approximately 100 officials from central government planning, finance, and energy ministries; international experts; finance institutions; and utilities and system operators to share experiences about how their countries can design and implement policy measures and financial mechanisms that can accelerate investment for grid-connected projects.
This theme complements earlier regional workshops that the Asia LEDS Partnership has organized on climate finance readiness and access, and builds on regional momentum to spur private investment in green growth, LEDS, and implementation of nationally determined contributions (NDCs).
This workshop aims to spark interest of participants in innovative and emerging policy and financing instruments, showcase early examples of their application, and offer direction on how to pursue similar innovations in one’s own national context. Specifically, the workshop will:
• Enable exchange of knowledge on innovative policy instruments and emerging financial mechanisms, in order to form effective public-private partnerships that unlock finance for clean energy;
• Help responsible government agencies strengthen innovative policy measures that catalyze finance for grid-connected clean energy; and
• Define actions that can be taken to accelerate deployment of clean energy.
• National policy-makers and practitioners in LEDS, green growth, and clean energy, particularly from Ministries of Planning, Finance, and Energy
• International development and climate finance institutions
• Utilities and system operators
• Other: technical and academic institutes, NGOs, project developers, financial institutions, investors, private companies, and technology suppliers
