Project scope and objective
The objective of the project is to support the implementation energy efficiency projects (the “EE Projects”) developed by Energy Services companies (the “ESCOs”) in Colombia by providing an adequate financing solution involving capital markets which will give a platform to mobilize investors with the appetite and capacity to finance EE Projects through a securitized debt issuance .
The project will offer a two-stage financing mechanism. First, during the Accumulation Stage, the IDB will provide a senior warehousing loan (IDB Loan) to a dedicated vehicle, the Colombia Energy Efficiency Trust (“CEET”), for the purpose of purchasing and accumulating credit rights arising from the EE Projects for its subsequent securitization. Second during the Mobilization Stage, the IIC will provide a Partial Credit Guarantee (PCG) to support the securitization of these credit rights in local or international capital markets.
The project is part of a larger effort developed in partnership with the Multilateral Investment Fund (MIF) and the CTF. Joint efforts include additional financial resources to the CEET such as equity, guarantees and grants from MIF, CTF and the Nordic Development Fund (NDF). In addition, technical assistance resources from MIF and CTF will focus on capacity building (to the demand and supply side of the EE value chain) and SME awareness raising.
