SUMMARY: This toolkit is designed to support national development banks and other agencies responsible for implementing energy efficiency financing programs under the Inter- American Development Bank’s Regional Energy Savings Insurance and Risk Management Program. It aims to support key implementers including program managers and consultants in creating programs in their own countries. In addition, the toolkit is intended to inform implementers of energy efficiency financing programs interested in following the ESI model in Asia and Africa. This is a publication of the Inter-American Development Bank, developed with financial support from the Danish Energy Agency of the Danish Ministry of Energy, Utilities and Climate. The toolkit and its annexes were authored by BASE – Basel Agency for Sustainable Energy, a Swiss foundation and Collaborating Centre of the United Nations Environment Programme with a focus on driving investment in sustainable energy. Material used for this toolkit has been adopted from the experience in Mexico and Colombia including methods applied by ANCE and ICONTEC, the respective local validators in Mexico and Colombia.
