So my first resource is climatescope 2012 which is a report and index that assesses the investment climate for climate-related investment in Latin America and the Caribbean.
It profiles 26 countries in the region and evaluates their ability to attract capital for low-carbon energy sources while building a greener economy.
To assign each country an overall score, Climatescope examines four overarching and interrelated parameters described below. These parameters are supported by a series of 30 indicators based on data captured by Bloomberg New Energy Finance through first-hand research, consultation of publicly available sources and discussions with experts. Together, these indicators and their corresponding parameters form a holistic picture of a particular country’s climate for climate-related investment.
Let me know what you think …could this be adapted for North America…maybe I will look at this and provide some thoughts on this tomorrow.
