Renewable energy and energy efficiency financing for poorer households and small to medium enterpris

This brief report has been produced in response to an Evidence on Demand Help-Desk request. It supports a DFID project business case for proposed renewable energy and energy efficiency financing schemes for poorer households and small to medium enterprises to be implemented in four Caribbean states. Capitalised by financial institutions, these schemes will use experience from other initiatives to work towards achievement of results. 

The report outlines evidence on barriers to scaling up, lessons from financing schemes and energy smart funds and their use and considerations for effective design. It covers examples of financing schemes that have been used before to target households and SMEs.
