iBuild: financing infrastructure systems

Financing infrastructure has an influence on its building, use and dismantling. We need a sustainable transition of infrastructure systems across the world. iBuild investigates the provision and governance to achieve this.

Description

Recent developments capture synergies within industrial parks. New business models propose how these can be financed. Other developments determine lock-in values of existing infrastructure systems and building stocks. These include economic, social and environmental values.

iBuild is quantifying the impact that financing, use, quality and equity of infrastructure provision can have. We are considering the impact not only on investors, but also on society as a whole. We are considering infrastructure provision such as bridges, energy, and roads.
