The International Hydropower Association (IHA) works with developers, investors, international financial institutions and NGOs to unlock greater investment for sustainable hydropower.
In an effort to promote investment in sustainable hydropower in key African markets, we are working with the finance and legal community on a guide to assist developers and investors navigate critical legal and bankability issues. This guide is due to be published in early 2021.
Through the International Forum on Pumped Storage Hydropower
, launched in November 2020, we are working with partners to devise policy recommendations to incentivise and de-risk the development of pumped storage.
We are also working with partners to agree recognised eligibility criteria to fund hydropower projects through green bonds, an innovative new investment instrument. Green bonds are fixed income loans for the finance and refinance of projects and assets that help address environmental and climate risks.
