IMF Energy Price Forecast Positive for Carbon Emissions Abatement

October 9, 2010

High energy commodity prices and energy security concerns are possibly the best drivers for renewable energy and energy efficiency investment.

The International Monetary Fund assesses near-term prospects for commodities, including energy, and forecasts steady continued growth, more tempered than in recent times, primarily due to a cooling off of China’s economy.

A non-volatile, continued energy price growth will ensure that energy effiiciency and renewable energy investment continues to look attractive for all stages of investment in the alternative energy and energy efficiency-related technology cycle: research, commercialisation, and deployment.
