Private Sector (Nonsovereign) Financing
In the Spotlight
ADB's Sarulla Geothermal Power Project in Indonesia won Project Finance International Asia Power Deal of the Year 2014. ADB accepted the award in London together with sponsors, Itochu, and Medco Power. This landmark renewable energy financing deal included innovative structuring of concessional funds from the Clean Technology Fund and the Canadian Climate Fund.
It is now easier to register a business in many Pacific island countries following a successful pilot program in the Solomon Islands.
Michael Barrow, Deputy Director General of ADB's Private Sector Operations Department, writes in an op-ed about how MDBs like ADB remain relevant and sought after as core financiers of private infrastructure projects in Asia.
As a catalyst for private investments, ADB provides direct financial assistance to private sector projects. While ADB’s participation is usually limited, it leverages a large amount of funds from commercial sources to finance these projects. Projects must also have clear development impacts and/or demonstration effects that go beyond the benefits captured in the financial rate of return.
