Energy Efficiency Financing Platform (EEFP):

The objective of EEFP is to provide a platform to interact with financial institutions and project developers for implementation of energy efficiency projects. Under this programme, MoUs have been signed with financial institutions to work together for the development of energy efficiency market and for the identification of issues related to this market development. MoUs with M/s. PTC India Ltd, M/s. SIDBI, HSBC Bank, Tata Capital and IFCI Ltd have been signed by BEE to promote financing for energy efficiency projects. Main objective of these MoUs is to promote lending  in the areas of performance contracting, DSM initiatives, energy efficiency in commercial sector, industrial complexes, power plants etc. In 2014-15, two conferences on “Addressing Financing issues for Energy Efficiency Projects in India” have been organized in Pune and Chandigarh, and two training workshops for financial institutions and ESCOs have been organized in Delhi and Mumbai. 

In May 2015, BEE has signed MoU with Indian Banks Association for the Training Programme for Scheduled Commercial Banks on Energy Efficiency Financing. During the inaugural function of these training workshops on 1st June 2015 in Mumbai, Dr. Ajay Mathur, Director General, BEE launched a booklet on “Success Stories for Energy Efficiency Projects Financed in India” and a “Training Manual for Energy Efficiency Financing in India”. This booklet of 50 success stories of Energy Efficiency projects financed by SIDBI covers 20 industrial sectors across the country to adopt energy efficient technologies and processes.  The training manual covers all the training modules/presentations required for the understanding of energy efficiency projects and their characteristics, and it aims to help in technical/financial evaluation of EE projects.

These workshops will focus on building the capacity of loan officers and risk managers and provide an overview on the technical and economic characteristics of EE projects, business models, financing needs, and risk management approaches.
