PwC, LTIIA Map Energy Transition Trends for Infrastructure Investors

A new report, published by PwC Luxembourg and the Long-Term Infrastructure Investors Association (LTIIA), has reviewed and analysed energy transition trends and the implications for institutional investors in infrastructure. It noted an 18.5% increase in infrastructure funding between 2019-22, with the share of fundraising by infrastructure funds linked totally or partially to renewable energy increasing to 92% within the same time period – the equivalent of US$132 billion out of US$144 billion for infrastructure funds globally in 2022. Sixty-one percent of investments in the global energy sector this year will be directed towards renewable energy, nuclear power, electric vehicles, and energy efficiency, according to new research, the report added. Francois Bergere, LTIIA’s Executive Director, said: “Despite the continuous growth in global infrastructure investments supporting the energy transition, net zero goals remain challenging to attain, and we have yet to align with the necessary path to reach them. The growing awareness and prevailing emphasis on ESG considerations in the asset management sector is already making the energy transition the dominant global investment theme and prepares the ground for the required ramp-up, provided both public and private actors gear up to the challenge.”
