A Little “TLC” for Clean Energy -25Sept 2010

In two separate hearings—one on the Global Clean Energy Race held by the House Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming and one on the U.S. Department of Energy’s Loan Guarantee Program (LGP) held by the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee—the case for re-establishing the U.S. as the leader in clean energy manufacturing and deployment was well argued. During the House hearing, witnesses from venture capital firms, investment banks, renewable technology developers and financial analysis providers all came close to consensus on identifying the reason for why America continues to fall further behind in the clean energy race: the lack of a consistent policy framework.

Mark Fulton, the Managing Director and Global Head of Climate Change Investment Research at Deutsche Asset Management, gave the audience a memorable policy prescription for how to fix the current impasse in Congress: Transparency, Longevity and Certainty (TLC). In other words, for investors to feel comfortable assuming the risk to financially support clean energy projects, they will need to be assured of the transparency in a country’s clean energy policies, the longevity of those policies, and the certainty that the recommended incentives will be trustworthy and financeable. While Mr. Fulton did highlight existing U.S. policies that partially fulfilled the TLC criteria, such as state-level renewable portfolio standards, without a complementary Renewable Electricity Standard at the federal level.
