European Project Finance Review - 3Q16
The global downturn in clean energy investment recorded in the latest quarter was largely attributable to a substantial 39% drop in European project financing.
Clean Energy Pipeline’s latest figures reveal a total of $10.38 billion was invested across 91 project finance deals in Q3 2016, which represented a decline of 12% year-on-year and marked the lowest performing quarter in European renewable energy asset investment in the past two years.

Global green bond review - 3Q16
Governments, corporates and financial institutions around the world issued $22.8 billion [+6% from Q2] in green bonds in the third quarter as investors continue to put their faith in green bond returns and banks capitalise on a low interest rate environment.
Ultimately, the strong Q3 performance means the total amount invested in the first three quarters of 2016 stands at 34% more than the amount of green bond activity in the whole of 2015.
Commercial banks fuelled much of the activity in the Q3 green bond market, issuing $7 billion more in bonds than they did in Q2.

Global green bond review - 2Q16
Clean Energy Pipeline’s latest figures show green bonds in the last quarter have skyrocketed to $20.2 billion, a 53% increase on the $13.2 billion issued in Q2 2015.
Despite the year-on-year growth, green bond issuances actually fell by $2.6 billion from Q1 2016. The main cause for this fall was a $7.5 billion drop in issuances from China, an explosive market in Q1 totalling $8.5 billion.

UK Clean Energy Market Review 2Q16
Clean energy investment in the UK during Q2 2016 was down across nearly all asset classes as impending fears about Brexit took hold on the market.
Total investment in the UK in the last quarter equalled nearly $8.8 billion, a 12% decrease from the $10 billion invested in Q2 2015, according to Clean Energy Pipeline figures released today. It was also a nearly $7 billion fall from the investment recorded in Q1 this year, although that quarter’s figures were somewhat inflated due to a rise in project finance investments as companies raced to beat the Renewables Obligation deadline.
