The Nexus Between Green Bonds and a Resilient Grid
The upsurge of electricity demand will continue to be on the ascendency and strategic measures to meet demand will need to focus on a diversified energy mix that is sustainable and secure enough to be available for demand. In discussing the electricity value chain from generation, transmission, and distribution down right to the consumer, the transmission aspect of the value chain requires immense capital investment. The present challenge of the transmission aspect of electricity development is weatherization of the grid, optimization of the grid, and a less disruptive integration of large-scale renewable energy without compromising the grid integrity and stability. As a strategy for global decarbonization and sustainability, integrating low carbon sources of power in the global energy mix is a sure way to address the prospective exploitation of more hydrocarbons to meet the future demand for energy.
One of the financial instruments for the development of climate mitigating projects is Green bonds. Green bonds are fixed-income instruments dedicated to generating funds for climate and environmental projects. They finance projects aimed at energy efficiency, pollution prevention, sustainable agriculture, fishery and forestry, the protection of aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems, clean transportation, clean water, and sustainable water management.
