Project Description and Summary of Services

 

 

 

 

 

The Philippine Efficient Lighting Market Transformation Project (PELMATP) is a five year project being implemented by the Government of the Philippines through the Department of Energy (DOE). The project aims to remove barriers against the widespread use of energy efficient lighting (EEL) systems in the Philippines. It is supported by the Global Environment Facility (GEF) through its implementing agency, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).


PELMATP has several components addressing policy, institutional, information, and financial barriers. The Design and Implementation of EEL Micro Financing Scheme is one of the components earmarked to address the financing barriers.  Its goal is to promote EEL through consumer cooperatives, a sector noted to be effective distribution channel of consumer products. The expected output is a micro financing/ business model scheme that will facilitate procurement and distribution of EEL products through the said sector.


These deliverables are as follows:

  • Conduct inventory and assessment of existing consumer cooperatives for the purpose of identifying the type of cooperatives that can participate in EEL micro financing and determine their capacity building needs.
  • Develop the appropriate EEL Micro financing model(s) suitable for consumer cooperatives.
  • Conduct regional consultations with consumer cooperatives and provide the training to capacitate the cooperatives to participate in the micro financing model developed. A set of criteria will be developed to select the most suitable training sites.
  • Negotiate financing bulk procurement arrangements with EEL suppliers (importers and manufacturers)
  • Implement the micro financing models in three (3) cooperatives in the country preferably one each in Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao.

The objective of this project is to build the capacity of local financial institutions to provide financing for EEL initiatives. This project provides training to banks on the technical processes underlying EEL investments, innovative financing techniques, use of ESCOs, and risk management. In the context of the need for commercial financing by start-up ESCOs and EEL projects, this training emphasizes “project finance” type of lending as opposed to “asset-backed” lending build their confidence on the reliance on energy savings to pay off the initial investment cost. Marketing and promotional materials are prepared to help banks sell their financing products.
