The Institute for Industrial Productivity India works to adapt lending practices to the needs of energy efficiency projects. IIPI partners with industries, banks, Energy Service Companies (ESCOs), and regulators to pilot innovative programs, undertake demonstration projects, and document case studies for wider dissemination.

Government regulations and incentives can encourage the introduction of energy efficiency in industry, but industry needs private financing in order to actually undertake the investments required for low carbon manufacturing.

Industry is failing to make many profitable and feasible investments in energy efficiency because of perceived risk, project size, and because of the way energy efficiency investments are treated both within companies and by financial institutions.

The challenge is to ensure that industrial and financial decision-makers have adequate, accurate, and timely technical and financial information as they consider energy efficiency investments.

Sharing best practices in Industrial Energy Efficiency Financing

IIPI identifies, develops, pilots, and shares best practice in financial options, platforms, and products to facilitate investment decisions for various energy efficiency technologies and help leverage private finance.

IIPI provides refined information on financing options for energy efficiency investment, such as risk-sharing guarantees and energy performance contracting.

IIPI works with banking authorities, local and international financial institutions, technical experts in the public and private sectors, and industry associations to develop innovative financial approaches.
