The UK Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) and the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conser-vation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) jointly set up the “NAMA Facility”. The Facility is designed to support developing countries that show strong leadership on tackling climate change and want to implement transformational Nationally Appropriate Mitigating Actions (NAMA);
Build developing country capacity to deploy carbon capture and storage technologies. The UK will provide £60 million of finance from the International Climate Fund (ICF) to support developing countries to develop both the technical and institutional knowledge necessary to enable the deployment of CCS technologies. Financial support would be channelled toward a range of projects with the aim of ensuring sufficient political support is created to pave the way for full scale demonstration and ultimately the deployment of CCS.;
The PMR brings together developed and developing countries, creating a platform for capacity building, sharing knowledge/expertise and best practice on Emisson Trading Systems (ETSs). The PMR provides grant funding to 15 developing/middle income countries to build market readiness components and pilot domestic ETSs and new crediting mechanisms.;
Expanding and building on the innovative UK-developed interactive energy and emissions scenario ‘2050 calculator’, DECC is assisting ten developing country governments to build similar calculators as strategic platforms toward a low carbon future. DECC will be providing £1.5 million over 2012-2014 to work directly with the developing country governments to help them build their own version of the UK’s 2050 Calculator. DECC will provide training on how to use it to explore viable low carbon development pathways with stakeholders and to inform policy making. Through engaging in a dialogue around the 2050 calculator, involved countries are encouraged to evaluate their unique opportunities and risks towards low carbon development. The tool will support developing countries drawing up their own low-carbon development plans helping them to be analytically robust, transparent and easily communicated. Recipient countries may include Bangladesh, Brazil, South Africa, India, Mexico, Colombia, Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesia, Algeria and Nigeria. The 2050 calculator has already been used to influence low carbon plans in the UK and Belgium, and the China is in the early stages of analysing what their version means for their low carbon development. To complement the national calculators this project will also develop a comprehensive, robust and influential “Global Calculator”. It will primarily be a communications tool aimed at energising the debate on climate change ahead of the 2015 negotiations, by helping to answer questions on how the global energy, food and land use system “adds up” (for example: what is the maximum global potential for nuclear power?; do we have enough raw materials to support possible future consumption habits?, and; what is the trade off of land for bioenergy, food production and forestry?). The target audience is businesses, NGOs and government officials working in strategy functions and international negotiations (from finance, environment, energy and transport ministries). The project would begin at the start of 2013 and finish by the end of 2014. This timetable means the tool would be rolled out in advance of the UNFCCC 2015 negotiations aimed at reaching a new international agreement with legal force to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. ;
Multilateral World Bank-administered funds to help developing countries pilot low-carbon, climate-resilient pathways. This is funded by both the Department for International Development and the Department of Enegry and Climate Change (DECC). This refers only to the DECC spend.;
The UK’s International Climate Fund (ICF) will fund: (1) Equity investment in the Climate Public Private Partnership Asia Fund – CP3 Asia in the amount of £60,000,000 to catalyse low carbon investments in Asia. (2) Equity investment in the IFC Catalyst Fund (CF) in the amount of £50,000,000 to strengthen the financial infrastructure for low carbon investments globally. (3) Grant financing for the Technical Assistance and Project Development Facility (£20,000,000) to assist with project pipeline and fund development. (4) Programme development costs: £384,401.94 contracted; up to £100,000 additional work projected (total project development costs: not exceeding £500,000). This is funded by the Department for International Development and Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC). This refers only to DECC spend.;
Green Africa Power (GAP) has been developed jointly by the UK Department of Energy and Climate Change (£25m) and UK Department for International Development (£53m) and in total the UK is contributing £98million over 2012 to 2015 to tackle specific constraints to private sector investment in renewable power generation in Africa. The UK will provide £95 million to capitalise GAP - a new company that will be established under the Private Infrastructure Development Group (PIDG) Trust. GAP will invest in renewable energy projects to demonstrate the viability of renewable energy in Africa so that future projects are more likely to happen and attract private developers and investors. A further £3 million will be used to set up the project, monitor and evaluate these impacts and capture and disseminate this knowledge. GAP aims to support projects that will install ~270MW of renewable energy in Africa in 4 years, avoiding an estimated 2.3m tonnes of CO2 emissions. ;
Targeted support closing the gap between project developers and investors in renewable energy projects.
