Momentum on Carbon Pricing

Momentum appears to be building for setting a price on carbon (carbon tax) that can be traded globally.  If the international carbon trading price rises to fully reimburse a 20% equity investor in a project funded by a funding mechanism similar to the Sustainable Energy Finance (SEF) Program by the Climate Financial Advisory Services (CFAS) division of SMEFUNDS Capital Limited.  I expect this will really accelerate investment in projects funded by this type of mechanism.
