WEC Knowledge Network onInnovative Financing Mechanisms“Smart grids from invention to implementation” Preliminary Findings
Innovative Financing Mechanisms WEC Knowledge NetworkTo formulate Policy Recommendations towards Innovative SG Financing Mechanisms EU North America Japan South Korea China India Brazil * Brazil has recently joined Spring 2011 End of June 2012 Preliminary Analysis Regional Context Summer 2012 Main SG drivers Main challenges Policy Recommendations Currently available Late 2012 Financing Mechanisms Final report
SG Main Drivers and Challenges WEC - Preliminary Findings Drivers strongly depend on the regional contextLow Carbon and Energy Efficiency • OECD Countries Green Economy Growth Agenda • OECD Asian Countries Main Drivers Fast Growth Infrastructure • Emerging Countries Business case and Financing • Most Countries Main Regulation • EU and North America Challenges Public awareness/acceptance • EU and North America No significant challenges reported by South Korea Just a few from China (where state-owned network companies enable rapid construction) High technical and non technical losses reported in India (mainly from thefts) and Brazil
Available Financing Mechanisms Some Best Practice examples WEC - Preliminary Findings• European Union: EU •USTDA $686,447 grant for SG implementation funding programs for RD&D projects (FP7, •DRUM Training Program: IEE, NER300, $30 million by the USAID Connecting EU and the Indian Ministry of facilities) Power for SG development• USA: over $4 billion from DOE Public External Funding Grants Private Regulatory Funding Incentives• North America: Partnership • New Tailored Mechanisms: GE/venture capital •AEEG (IT) ‘Del39/10’ firms •OFGEM (UK) ‘RIIO, LCNF’,• South Korea: IFI, RPZ’, Government + private •‘R-APDRP’ (India) funds (0.5 +18.1 billion USD)
