    Financing climate change action

    Limiting climate change to 2°C requires a major shift in investment patterns towards low-carbon, climate resilient options. Empirical evidence gathered in the report "Overcoming barriers to international investment in clean energy" shows that LCRs have hindered international investment across the solar PV and wind-energy value chains, by increasing the cost of inputs for downstream activities.

    Mobilising investment opportunities in clean energy infrastructure

    Investments in clean energy infrastructure need to be scaled up to support the broader development, economic and climate agenda. This will require leveraging private investment, however investment in this area remains constrained by barriers, including market and government failures. This page describes what tools the OECD provides to governments to create an enabling environment for investment flows to clean energy infrastructure.

    Overcoming Barriers to International Investment in Clean Energy

    The perceived potential of clean energy to support employment in the post-crisis recovery context has led several OECD and emerging economies to design green industrial policies aimed at protecting domestic manufacturers, notably through local-content requirements (LCRs). These typically require solar or wind developers to source a specific share of jobs, components or costs locally. Such requirements have been designed or
