Closing the Gap: GEF Experiences in Global Energy Efficiency by Ming Yang

By Ming Yang

Energy potency performs and may proceed to play a huge position on this planet to save lots of power and mitigate greenhouse gasoline (GHG) emissions. even though, little is understood on how a lot extra capital could be invested to make sure utilizing strength successfully appropriately, and extremely little is understood which sub-areas, applied sciences, and nations shall in attaining greatest greenhouse gasoline emissions mitigation consistent with buck of funding in strength potency all over the world.

Analyzing accomplished and slowly relocating strength potency initiatives through the worldwide surroundings Facility in the course of 1991-2010, Closing the space: GEF reviews in international strength potency evaluates affects of multi-billion-dollar investments on the planet strength potency. It covers the subsequent parts:

1. Reviewing the area strength potency funding and disclosing the worldwide power potency hole and marketplace limitations that reason the gap;

2. Leveraging inner most money with public cash and different assets in power potency investments; utilizing those money in tangible and intangible asset investments;

3. funding effectiveness in funds in line with metric ton of CO2 emissions mitigation in 10 power potency sub-areas;

4. significant limitations inflicting failure and abandonments in strength potency investments;

5. Quantification of direct and oblique CO2 emissions mitigations in and out a venture boundary; and

6. class and estimation of CO2emissions mitigations from tangible and intangible asset investments.

Closing the space: GEF stories in worldwide power potency can function a guide for policymakers, venture traders and executives, and venture implementation practitioners wanting benchmarks in power potency venture investments for decision-making. it might probably even be utilized by scholars, researchers and different execs in universities and learn associations in technique improvement for comparing power potency initiatives and courses.

With the updated information, Chap. 4 provides an overview of the initial project development stage in the mid1990s, the project implementation and operation stage in the late 1990s and the early 2000s, and the latest stage in 2011 after the project was closed. Chapter 5 presents the methodological framework of the analysis and its key elements. This chapter also describes data collection, processing, analysis, assumptions, and limitations. Chapter 6 presents the GEF portfolio of energy efficiency investments.

These contributions include: (1) resources from the Agency itself; (2) resources from other nonGEF sources that will be managed jointly or in parallel with the GEF resources without which the project could not be implemented; (3) government counterpart resources; (4) finance for other baseline or foundational activities upon which the project would build or without which the project could not be implemented; (5) finance for activities other than the GEF activities that are processed for transactional convenience in the same loan or technical assistance package of the GEF Agency; and (6) funds that are expected to be mobilized in the future for follow-on or replication activities, even though implementation of the project would proceed before mobilization is confirmed (GEF 2003b).
