Presenting useful information on energy efficiency and project finance to industrial and commercial facility managers is always a challenge. IIEC and PA Consulting have been working with Electrobras, the Brazilian electric utility, to create a novel approach to this problem. Under a World Bank program, IIEC is assisting in the development of an interactive Project Development and Finance Guide, which will be made available on a web portal sponsored by PROCEL, Electrobras's energy-efficiency unit.


In place of the normal static display of information, the consulting team has been creating a web-based technical guide that allows the user to view the project development process as an interactive diagram, in which they can access information and/or decision support models that correspond to their own stage of project development. The guide then walks through each step and allows the user to develop the documentation (e.g., business plans) and financial analysis (including analyses of both debt and equity) needed to enable management and financial institutions to evaluate the economic soundness and returns of their project. The web-based finance guide will be in Beta demonstration phase by early November, and will be finalized by the end of the year.
