Derisking Renewable Energy Investment

11 Aug 2014

Case Study

UNDP has developed a case study exercise using the Derisking Renewable Energy Investment (DREI) framework.  The case study can be a helpful way to be introduced to the concepts behind the DREI framework, and to gain a practical understanding of the financial tool.


The case study exercise is centered around a fictional developing country, “Country X”, that is seeking to promote 500MW of private sector investment in onshore wind energy. The case study exercise demonstrates how the DREI financial tool can model Country X’s baseline energy costs, and then compares the cost effectiveness of two different sets of public measures to catalyse the wind energy investment.
