This manual introduces the DREI (Derisking Renewable Energy Investment) framework that identifies the barriers and associated risks holding back private sector investment in renewable energy. The DREI assists policymakers to put in place packages of targeted public interventions to address these risks. Each public intervention acts in one of three ways: either reducing, transferring or compensating for risk. The overall aim of the DREI is to cost-effectively achieve a risk-return profile that catalyses private-sector investment at scale as well as to provide reliable and affordable renewable energy solutions in developing countries.
