Developing the 2017 edition of the Allianz Climate and Energy Monitor that will rate the G20 members states against their ‘investment attractiveness’ and ‘investment needs’ for renewable energy infrastructure.
NewClimate and Germanwatch have come together again to develop the 2017 edition of the Allianz Climate and Energy Monitor for the Allianz group. The updated Monitor will rate the G20 member states against their ‘investment attractiveness’ and ‘investment needs’ for renewable energy infrastructure. In last year’s rankings, Germany topped the G20 in terms of investment attractiveness and India had the highest needs for renewable energy investments. Moreover, under the umbrella of the Monitor, the gap between current renewable energy investments and investments needed for a 1.5 °C / 2 °C compatible renewable energy investment trajectory will be estimated. To this effect, a simple model to quantify the past investments and future investment needs in a consistent way across time and across eventually all G20 countries will be developed. It will generate a unique dataset on the ‘renewable energy investment gap’ that is currently not available and will form the third analytical pillar of the Monitor.
In addition to the Monitor, the project team will also develop a focussed analytical piece – deep dive. The deep dives use the analysis undertaken in the Monitor (e.g. on the investment gap) and present what it means in the context of interesting global developments (such as USA elections in 2016).
