  • A new report from the Global Energy Monitor entitled ‘Nervous Money’ shows that concerns over climate risks are making it increasingly difficult to finance LNG projects in Europe.
  • Although once regarded as a potential climate solution, the report shows that LNG is increasingly regarded as a climate problem – particularly for European buyers. In the US the report reveals the impact on LNG due to growing competition from renewables.

The lead author of the report, Lydia Plante, says that the investment environment for LNG has soured in the aftermath of the IEA’s net-zero report which was released in May. The report sees gas demand dropping off significantly in the coming years and a global switch to total decarbonisation of the power sector through renewable energy.

Green Building Africa promotes the need for net carbon zero buildings and cities in Africa. We are fiercely independent and encourage outlying thinkers to contribute to the #netcarbonzero movement. Climate change is upon us and now is the time to react in a more diverse and broader approach to sustainability in the built environment. We challenge architects, property developers, urban planners, renewable energy professionals and green building specialists. We also challenge the funding houses and regulators and the role they play in facilitating investment into green projects. Lastly, we explore and investigate new technology and real-time data to speed up the journey in realising a net carbon zero environment for our children.
