Emerging market countries still lag behind developed markets regions in addressing climate change and deploying renewable energy solutions. Private sector opportunities can contribute to emerging countries’ progress on much-needed energy infrastructure to support substantial development. Private investment can sit alongside the public sector in the development of sustainable technologies for the emerging markets energy sector to address the very considerable level of demand.
The ARCH team works to create long-term value through customised products for our stakeholders, while addressing the emerging markets’ growing demand for bankable, de-risked energy generation, and at the same time ensuring affordability and strict adherence to the highest ethical and environmental standards.
