ABSTRACT OF PAPER
 
Title of Paper:
Islamic Finance and the Energy Sector: Existing Experiences and Policy Recommendations
 
Paper Proposal Text :
This paper analyzes existing experiences with Islamic financing of energy projects. We
argue that Islamic finance provides an additional channel to attract financial resources to improve energy eefficiency, access to energy, and a sustainable energy supply. Major forms of Islamic fi nance methods used in the energy sector (including gas, petrochemical, and power projects) are reviewed based on real-world cases (mainly from the Middle East region). A review of the limitations of Islamic finance in the energy sector and a set of policy recommendations are off ered.
