Abstract

Energy efficiency and small-scale renewable energy (EERE) projects have huge and essential contributions to make to create a sustainable, low-carbon economy and achieve the Millennium Development Goals. But there remains a large gap between the strong economic and environmental potential of EERE projects versus their limited commercial realization. A major cause of this gap is the lack of effective project delivery and financing mechanisms, adapted to national and local market conditions.
