Financial Instruments for Brazil Energy Efficient Cities (FinBRAZEEC) Approved March 2018 Est. implementation period 7.0 years
Providing a mix of public and private sector finance to provide funds for reducing energy intensity across Brazil.

Brazil has a high potential to achieve energy efficiency at scale given the country's high-energy intensity. Challenges exist, however, in mobilizing government and private investments. These challenges include government constraints caused by fiscal imbalances, and a steep decrease in private sector investment due to a slow recovery from several years of recession.

This project focuses on promoting energy efficiency to help Brazil meet its NDC goal by reducing energy demand. It will create a debt facility that catalyses private sector investments and channels loans to help cities adopt a standardized and replicable public-private partnership for street lighting. This will help provide off-balance sheet financing for energy efficiency to the industrial sector.

The project has an estimated lifespan of 15 years.
