Climate Alpha Infrastructure Renewal Index™ Dataset

Robust infrastructure is vital to sustainable communities and thriving economies. It not only delivers an economic multiplier effect but also contributes to better social outcomes. As public and private investment into transportation, energy, and other crucial infrastructure expands, Climate Alpha’s Infrastructure Renewal Index (IRI) can guide the real estate industry in steering capital towards the most resilient property markets.

Current infrastructure indexes are limited in both geographic coverage and comprehensiveness. Many focus on one niche such as roads or bridges or energy plants but don’t provide an assessment of infrastructure impact on the economy or specific industries such as real estate. At the same, broader indices tend to have low spatial resolution. Climate Alpha addresses these gaps through a comprehensive index covering a wide range of infrastructure features at a granular level.

The dataset offers insight into both the current state of infrastructure quality as well as projections of infrastructure spending across numerous categories.
