Mobilising Financing to Unlock the Energy Transition – In Conversation with the UK Export Finance

Finance will be a driving force in the global energy transition, and the international finance community will be pivotal in safeguarding a just energy transition. Project Finance will play a critical role in maximizing investment in the energy transition, which is currently estimated at around US$2 trillion per annum. Current investment figures fall far short of the anticipated US$7 trillion in investment required in the global energy sector annually to reach net zero by 2050.

In this episode of our Energy Transition Network fireside chat, our network chair, William Marder, Managing Director at Wilmington Trust interviews Joanna Mobed, Co-Head, Global Origination at UK Export Finance.

Joanna leads UK Export Finance’s business origination activities covering a range of sectors, including renewable energy, clean growth and infrastructure. She is also responsible for UK Export Finance’s international network in the region, including UK Export Finance’s Country Heads located in India, Korea, Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines. Joanna has extensive experience in negotiating and executing cross-border transactions, with a specific focus on structured and asset finance and project financing.

Fireside chat discussion points:

  • Interplay between net zero targets and the need for financing to drive these
  • Type of deal volumes that ECAs supported in the Energy transition space
  • Case studies of deals in the Energy Transition space that relied on ECA support
  • Key markets in which ECA finance has been particularly prominent to bring transformational energy transition projects to bear
