Investigating six case studies in Europe and the United States, this webinar explores how policy influences investment decisions in renewable energy. It presents several commonalities and concludes that (1) the duration of revenue supports had the greatest impact on financing costs, (2) revenue certainty is the second most important policy feature and (3) investors’ perceptions of risk also impact project financing costs.
