My latest guest blog on the 2 Degrees can be found here:


In it I discuss the things we need to evolve if the energy efficiency market, and particularly the third party financed energy efficiency market, is to really take-off and achieve its large economic potential.  These include:


  • the capacity in the energy efficiency supply chain to develop large-scale, multi-site, multi-customer projects

  • capacity amongst customers to host such projects

  • project developers with risk equity to develop such projects

  • standardization of approach and methodology driven by the needs of investors

  • possibly some form of front-end technical assistance funds to help developers shape projects to the needs of long-term investors and hence to be able to access capital at the right cost of capital.
