Kyoto Protocol period due to end in 3 months, Carbon Funds discuss solutions to safe investments and exit strategies in clean tech at World Energy Investment Summit 2012, Le Royal Meridien Shanghai
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE / PRURGENT
SHANGHAI (6 September 2012). The Center for Energy Sustainability and Economics conducted a survey that highlights the concern of carbon funds regarding the post-2012 scenario, highlighting the need for more stable exit strategies, clearer project methodology approvals and more profitable investment ventures.
The respondents cite that the steep fall of the EU ETS carbon price from 18 Euros a metric tonne to 4 Euros a metric tonne will remain until mid-2013. About 36% of the respondents see that until the debt crisis is over, there will be tougher capital investment climate, fewer project starts, more close downs and layoffs and further decline in price.
Whilst 20% are unsure whether the price will increase or there will be major game changing projects in the carbon space, interestingly a significant percentage (12 percent) cite the possibility of investing in other profitable businesses.
20% remain upbeat that carbon price will remain stable this year and will increase on the second half of 2013, but warn that without policy push, the industry will turn to currently the most economically attractive track: fossil fuels.
WEIS 2012 is the only event that combines carbon business with direct renewable energy and energy efficiency investments.
