SECOE - Renewable Energy for Bankers Workshop


Course Background


Financing is a key factor in ensuring the bankability of a project. Typically in Asia the financing for renewable energy projects have come from multilaterals banks, funding institutions, private sector clean energy funds, family offices and government subsidies. In most parts banks especially local banks in Asia have played a limited role due to the risk perception and lack of understanding of RE projects and technologies.


This course will arm the bankers with basic information on RE technologies, case studies on successful financing of RE projects, differences & similarities between traditional project finance and clean energy financing.


Course Outcome


By the end of the course, the participants should be able to:


  • Understand and implement the various financing products and mechanisms (i.e. green bonds, credit guarantees, yield co's, etc.).
  • Know the various incentive schemes banks can offer to encourage officers to develop their understanding of clean energy and pursue these types of loans.
  • Understand the clean energy market in their country and explore the opportunities for energy efficiency and renewable energy.
  • Discuss on existing clean energy programme in some countries and financial resources which are needed to implement these programmes.



The Sustainable Energy Centre of Excellence, launched in March 2015, aims to build technical capacity in the Asian region and to develop markets for the private sector to develop viable and bankable RE & EE projects in the Developing Member Countries of the ADB. The main work streams identified focuses on Energy Efficiency, Renewable Energy, and Energy Access as well as the Asian Clean Energy Summit. The overall objective is to accelerate public private partnerships as well as increase the bankability of RE & EE projects.


The Centre of Excellence serves as a hub for the region and a focal point for policy makers, technology providers, project developers, and financiers to discuss, collaborate and establish correct policies for each country to ensure the ease of implementing RE in the various countries in Asia by bringing thought leaders as well as implementers in the area of renewable energy together for structured programs, trainings, roundtables as well as high level policy and technology dialogues. The Centre aims to bridge the gaps and provide a neutral learning environment in Singapore to participants from all over Asia-Pacific supported by the ADB and IE Singapore. The centre is managed by Sustainable Energy Association of Singapore.
