The Energy Savings Insurance (ESI) Program seeks to promote investment in energy efficiency and distributed generation in Latin America, primarily through small-and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). It focuses on developing an innovative scheme of guaranteed energy performance that mitigates project risk and generates investor confidence. The IDB, with the support of the Danish government has been pioneering the development and implementation of the ESI Program in alliance with National Development Banks (NDBs) of the region.

During the webinar an international panel of experts will discuss how ESI and other financial instruments can help to remove the barrier for energy efficiency investments in SMEs. Additionally, IDB and Banco Estado will release an IDB publication “Energy Savings Insurance: Advances and Opportunities for Funding Small- and Medium-Sized Energy Efficiency and Distributed Generation Projects in Chile” that describes the main attributes of the ESI Model, and the market potential and priority sectors for its implementation in Chile.
