  • Mon
    8.30AM - 11.00AMJumeirah Emirates Towers, Dubai
    Cost: 250AED
    Dubai is discussing the option of launching a Green Sukuk (Islamic bond) to help fund some of its renewable energy plans.   The financing of renewable energy projects is seen as an issue because banks are often nervous about funding such initiatives.  It has resulted in organizations seeking more innovative ways to fund renewable energy developments.
    Clean Energy Business Council has been working with Dubai Ministries to promote a green sukuk as a new way of financing clean energy projects, and in collaboration with The Gulf Bond and Sukuk Association we welcome you to join us for an interactive seminar to discuss sustainable energy financing in MENA, and new ways of thinking about finance and capital.
    You will hear from leading industry experts including guest speakers from HSBC, International Finance Corporation (IFC), Enerwhere, Adenium Energy Capital, Faber Capital and Latham & Watkins.
    This is a fantastic opportunity for developers, finance institutions and industry stakeholders to share ideas and to meet potential partners through this networking series.
    De-carbonising the worlds energy system to avoid locking in polluting technologies and unacceptably high emission levels will require doubling existing investment levels to around USD 2 trillion a year. The genesis of this seminar is to get financiers and project developers thinking about new and innovative ways to finance sustainable energy projects – either energy efficiency or renewables.
