Abstract

A common struggle across energy efficiency programs is the creation of sustainable private sector markets that reduce demand. The purpose of this study is to outline best practices for smart public programs that overcome the main energy efficiency challenges and leverage the private finance needed for deployment at scale. Our concluded program is based on an assessment of 10 case studies, interviews, and evaluations of past programs. The results revealed that policy frameworks should strengthen investment business cases with the right economic and regulatory drivers. Furthermore, more resources should support technical assistance. Activities such as awareness raising, pipeline generation, and de-risking are essential to create sufficient demand and commitment. In addition, upskilling, equipping, and accrediting suppliers and technical advisors is critical to create a sustainable, scalable, and bankable pipeline.
