FINANCING ENERGY EFFICIENCY: FORGING THE LINK BETWEEN FINANCING AND PROJECT IMPLEMENTATION
Energy efficiency is not a single market: it covers measures in a diverse range of end-user sectors,
end-use equipment and technologies and consists of very large numbers of small, dispersed
projects with a dispersed range of decision makers. Overall, many EE technologies are proven
and economic: if properly financed, the investment costs are paid back over short periods from
energy cost savings. Yet, projects with compelling economic returns remain unimplemented.
Major causes for this gap are the lack of EE finance and delivery mechanisms that suit the
specifics of EE projects and the lack – in some markets – of pipelines of bankable energy
efficiency projects.
