This working paper was co-authored by IPD’s Stephany Griffith-Jones and Jose Antonio Ocampo, along with Dr. Stephen Spratt from the Institute of Development Studies. This paper reviews the instruments currently in use to finance renewable energy in developing countries, and considers those that have been proposed but not yet fully employed. It served as a background paper to the European Report on Development 2011/2012: Confronting scarcity: Managing water, energy and land for inclusive and sustainable growth. The European Report on Development was prepared by the Overseas Development Institute (ODI) in partnership with the Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE) and the European Centre for Development Policy Management (ECDPM).
