Increasingly Results Based Financing (RBF) is being piloted as an innovative tool to promote energy access in developing countries. It offers incentives payments on the basis of results achieved to businesses that deliver pre-specified outputs. This session will look at experiences using RBF in energy programs, compare different RBF schemes and draw lessons as to the key challenges and success factors. This session aims to inform and inspire energy practitioners, financial institutes, government representatives and other stakeholders on the use of RBF schemes in overcoming barriers and accelerate market development for energy access.
