In the recent budget, the Chancellor announced that the government is committed to ensuring that the Green Investment Bank (GIB) has the resources to help the UK to move towards a low-carbon economy. It will have an initial capitalisation of £3 billion and will begin operation in 2012–13, a year earlier than previously anticipated. Government investment alongside private finance should mean that there is in the region of an additional £18 billion of investment in green infrastructure by 2014–15 as a result of the GIB. The government will enable the GIB to have borrowing powers from 2015–16.
The practicalities of how the GIB will work is one of the central themes at City & Financial’s 9th Annual UK Infrastructure Financing and Investment Summit, which is being held on Thursday 23rd June 2011 in central London. Expert speakers, including Andrew Rose, acting chief executive, Infrastructure UK, and Gordon Innes, head of the low carbon business team, Department for Business, Innovation and Skills, which is leading the development of the GIB, are among the confirmed speakers that will address how the GIB will work in practice. They will be joined by a strong line-up of industry experts and an institutional investors panel, which will discuss investor appetite for the bonds that the GIB is likely to issue.
This year’s programme will focus on a number of big themes:
• Will the Green Investment Bank catalyse much needed investment in the infrastructure sector so that the investment targets in the National Infrastructure Plan can be met?
• How will the bank work in practice?
• What is the view of institutional investors towards the bank?
• What is the latest on the UK project pipeline?
• What are the latest policy developments at Infrastructure UK?
• How do overseas investors view the potential of UK infrastructure?
• Would the regulated asset approach work for roads?
• What will be the impact of the EU plans for supporting private sector bonds?
• How is the European Investment Bank's infrastructure investment strategy developing?
• What impact will the launch of the Major Infrastructure Planning Unit have on the market?
• Will the proposed reform of the electricity market stimulate investment?
• What are the latest developments in debt financing and refinancing?
• Has the Hadrian Wall's model reached critical mass?
