Energy Efficiency

Energy efficiency finance is a financial product offered by financial institutions (FIs) for the purpose of financing energy efficiency projects. An energy efficiency project aims at 1) reducing energy consumption for the same level of production or services; or 2) increasing productivity and creating more products/services output with the same level of energy consumption.

Opportunities exist across all economic sectors: industry, commerce, transport, residential, public, tourism, services and agriculture. Examples from the manufacturing sector include process upgrades such as improvements in heating and cooling equipment, and examples from the housing sector include building envelope improvements such as upgrades to windows and insulation.

An energy efficiency project can include funding for companies that produce energy efficiency equipment (such as solar water heaters for example) or provide energy efficiency services (ESCOs).

Energy efficiency projects often cover a large portion of housing renovations. They also comprise a large part of investments in micro small or medium enterprises.

Therefore, most FIs find that they already have a large pipeline of energy efficiency projects awaiting financing but are unsure as to how to evaluate the risks associated with them.

Once the pipeline is evident, FIs develop eligibility criteria that borrowers must meet in order to qualify for the loan or investment.
