The objective of the project was to achieve a
major increase in energy efficiency investments by the domestic financial
sectors in Brazil, China and India. Activities included technical assistance,
training, applied research and cross-country exchanges in four areas:
- developing commercial banking
opportunities for energy efficiency
- supporting Energy Service Companies
- creating guarantee funds for energy
- developing equity funding for ESCOs and
energy efficiency projects
The project was a joint
initiative of the World Bank and UNEP, funded
by the United Nations Foundation, and
is part of a larger World Bank programme on energy efficiency investments.
The project was jointly implemented by the World
Bank, URC and country teams in Brazil, China and India.
