World Energy Investment Outlook 2003: An Overview

Energy investment challenges include: half total energy investment is needed in developing countries - where financing will be hardest; capital needs are largest for electricity.

Policy implications for governments: should monitor and assess the need to adjust regulatory reforms in network industries; less direct intervention as lender or owner; increase emphasis on creating right enabling conditions - and lowering barriers to investment.

The event is sponsored by the director of the James A. Baker Institute for Public Policy, Rice University and Simmons & Company International
