INDIA - Financing Energy Efficiency at SMEs

"The objective of the Financing Energy Efficiency at Micro Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) Project for India is to increase demand for energy efficiency investments in target micro, small and medium enterprise clusters and to build their capacity to access commercial finance. There are four components to the project, the first component being activities to build capacity and awareness for energy efficiency (EE). This component will focus on increasing awareness of EE at the cluster and plant level on a large scale through the implementation of outreach and mobilization efforts, dissemination of information on successful projects and packaging potential investment proposals in EE for financing by local banks or other sources in five designated clusters. The second component is the activities to increase investment in EE. This component shall contribute to the growth of energy efficiency investments in the Indian MSMEs sector that are financed from local commercial financing sources through project development support and through deployment of performance linked grants for demonstration purposes. The third component is the knowledge management. The knowledge management effort will include the provision of resources and manpower for broad Global Environmental Facility (GEF) program evaluation and analysis of cross cutting energy efficiency issues with the goal of ensuring effective implementation and replication of not just this individual project, but of the Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE)'sentire GEF funded programmatic effort. Finally, the fourth component is the project management support."

Sustainable Urban Transport Project

"The project's development objective (PDO) is to promote environmentally Sustainable Urban Transport in India and to improve the usage of environment-friendly transport modes through demonstration projects in selected cities. There are two components to the project. The first component of the project is providing technical assistance to the Ministry of Urban Development (MoUD) to improve the national, state and local capacity to implement the capacity building elements and the public- and non-motorized-transport- related aspects of National Urban Transport Policy. The second component of the project is supporting design and implementation of demonstration projects in six selected cities (in five participating states), which will create models of sustainable transport solutions for other Indian cities to replicate. The six cities, selected by government of India (GOI) through a competitive selection process, include Pune and Pimpri-Chinchwad (in Maharashtra), Naya Raipur (in Chhattisgarh), Jalandhar (in Punjab), Indore (in Madhya Pradesh), and Mysore (in Karnataka). The International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD) loan will finance activities under the component two in three project cities (Pune, Pimpri-Chinchwad, and Naya Raipur). A Global Environment Facility (GEF) grant (being processed under a separate GEF project) will be used to finance component one and technical assistance activities of component two in all six cities."

Sustainable Rural Livelihoods and Security through Innovations in Land and Ecosystem Mgmt /Additional GEF financing to India NAIP

"The additional financing from the Global Environmental Facility (GEF) for India Sustainable Rural Livelihoods Security through Innovations in Land and Ecosystem Management Project will support the development and implementation of innovations in agriculture through collaboration among fanners, private sector, civil society, and public sector organizations. This GEF project has been included in the pipeline of projects under the Sustainable Ecosystem and Land Management Country Partnership Program (SLEM CPP) and approved by GEF Council on November 17, 2007. The project is complementary to the National Agricultural Innovation Project (NAIP) financing envelope in that it focuses on promoting approaches and techniques for sustainable management of degraded coastal land and water, on conserving and sustainably using local biodiversity (plant, animal, and fish) for agricultural intensification and livelihood security, and on enhancing capacity to respond to climate change and variability in drought and flood prone areas. The GEF support is incremental to the original project and will finance activities that address specifically land degradation, biodiversity and adaptation to climate change. The GEF support will also pilot local operationalization of adaptation strategies to climate change."

Chiller Energy Efficiency

"The objective of the Chiller Energy Efficiency Project (CEEP) for India are to reduce greenhouse gas emissions whilst simultaneously supporting the completion of the phase-out of consumption of ozone depleting substances required under the Montreal Protocol. There are four components to the project. The first component of the project is provision of incentives for investment in energy efficient chillers. In an effort to remove market and techno-economic barriers, the CEEP will provide:

(a) chiller owners with either:
(i) an upfront financial incentive to subsidize the cost of the replacement of centrifugal chillers before end of technical life; or
(ii) an annual payment from a share of certified emission reductions to be generated from the actual energy savings achieved by the new chillers; as well as
(b) an incentive for chiller manufacturers, suppliers and energy service companies (ESCOs) to actively participate in the project. The second component of the project is measurement, monitoring and verification.

As per the methodology approved by the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) Executive Board, the CEEP is required to monitor data related to the power-output function of the old chiller to be replaced, electrical consumption of the new chiller, and cooling output in order to measure energy savings and emission reductions achieved. The third component of the project is technical assistance. To support project readiness and sustainability, this component focuses on enhancing the awareness of relevant stakeholders in energy conservation measures, enhancing the understanding of the impact of decision to accelerate the phase-out of production of Chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) on the servicing sector, and strengthening the capacity of chiller owners and other stakeholders to monitor the performance of new chillers and to undertake refrigerant management. The fourth and the final component of the project is project management. A Project Management Unit (PMU) will be established at a financial intermediary - Industrial Development Bank of India (IDBI) - and will be responsible for implementing all activities under the CEEP."

Coal-Fired Generation Rehabilitation

"The objective of the Coal Fired Generation Rehabilitation Project for India is to improve energy efficiency of selected coal-fired power generation units through renovation and modernization (R&M) and improved operations and maintenance (O&M). The global environmental objective of the project is the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions through energy efficient rehabilitation of coal-fired power plants. There are two components to the project, the first component being Energy Efficient Renovation and Modernization (EE R&M) pilots. This component will renovate and modernize 640 Mega Watts (MW) of old coal-fired power generation capacity to demonstrate energy efficient rehabilitation approaches. Energy efficient R&M of generation units will go beyond the typical Indian practice, of restoring original generation capacity, life-extension, and improving availability, by also modifying (or replacing) some equipment and systems to enable the unit to operate with higher fuel efficiency. This component will also explore and demonstrate approaches for successful implementation of R&M projects (with a focus on energy efficiency) by addressing barriers, including through early identification and mitigation of risks. Finally, the second component is the technical assistance. The technical assistance component of the project is aimed at providing support in implementation of EE R&M pilots, developing a pipeline of EE R&M interventions, addressing barriers to EE R&M projects and strengthening institutional capacities of implementing agencies for improved operation and maintenance practices."
