The role of RBF in realising sustainable energy for all

The role of RBF in realising sustainable energy for all

What are the expectations of donors when using Result-Based Financing (RBF) as a market accelerator? What are concrete lessons from RBF practitioners? We will address these questions and many more in the panel discussion we are co-hosting with EnDev on Monday, 3 April 2017 at the Sustainable Energy for All (SEforALL) Forum in New York City: “The role of result-based financing in realising sustainable energy for all”

Increasingly Results Based Financing (RBF) is being piloted as an innovative tool to promote energy access in developing countries. It offers incentive payments on the basis of results achieved to businesses that deliver pre-specified outputs. This panel discussion will look at experiences using RBF in energy programmes, compare different RBF schemes and draw lessons as to the key challenges and success factors. The session aims to inform and inspire energy practitioners, financial institutes, government representatives and other stakeholders on the use of RBF schemes in overcoming barriers and accelerate market development for energy access.

Additionally to the panel discussion, EnDev together with its partner organisations, prepared a report on the lessons learnt in implementing RBF approaches.
