2015 Energy Sector Global PPI Update

This sector note covers private participation in infrastructure (PPI) in low and middle income countries in 2015. The following trends stood out in 2015:

  • Private participation in energy in emerging markets was US$37.6 billion in 2015, 50 % below the five-year average of US$74.7 billion.
  • The decline is largely due to both Brazil and India having the lowest investment in a decade; the Philippines hit an all-time high.
  • Unlike previous years, renewables made up almost 2/3 of investment in energy; solar energy investment was 72% higher than the five-year average.
