Results-Based Financing for Off-grid Energy Access in India

Solar

The fundamental idea of Results-Based Financing (RBF) approaches is that payments that would otherwise be made automatically are made contingent on delivery of (a) preagreed result(s), with achievement of the results being subject to independent verification. As RBF approaches become an increasingly popular way to support development objectives, CEEW uses the analytical framework to suggest how 1) the deployment of solar water heating systems in urban residential buildings in India can be increased. and 2) the extent to which RBFs could support innovation across the energy access supply chain can be increased. These case studies will eventually be published as part of a longer report (hereinafter referred to as the “main report”) on Results-Based Financing (RBF) prepared for the World Bank-administered Energy Sector Management Assistance Program (ESMAP).

Mobilizing the Private Sector: Quantity-Performance Instruments for Public Climate Funds

Resources

In recent years, public sector funding, in general, and for the support of activities in developing countries, in particular, has become more and more ‘results’ and ‘performance’ oriented. In this paper, Arunabha Ghosh (CEEW), Benito Müller (Oxford University), William Pizer (Duke University), and Gernot Wagner (Columbia University) look at activities that are associated with quantitative performance indicators, i.e. performance assessed in terms of measured quantities such as tonnes (of carbon), kWh, or hectares as carried out by the private sector. The aim is to review options for the use of such Quantity-Performance (QP) instruments (such as direct purchase, top-up instruments, and tradable put options) as a way of channelling public funds to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions in a cost-effective way.
