This paper draws upon selected experiences with financing energy efficiency (EE) in developing countries to explore the key factors of various programmatic approaches and financing instruments that have been applied successfully for delivering EE solutions. With adequate liquidity in major developing country markets and availability of modern energy savings technologies, institutional issues become a key challenge to address. As operational experience is gained, increased knowledge sharing can lead to a scaling-up of such EE investments. The paper concludes with some ideas for accelerating implementation.
