This will be accomplished by removing capacity and financial barriers through formal and on the job training as well as through the introduction of new financial mechanisms. A series of demonstration retrofit projects will be carefully selected, and financing obtained to complete the energy efficiency demonstrations. Full cost-recovery for the demonstrations will be ensured to prove to SME in Kenya that improving energy efficiency can be profitable. The project will enable entrepreneurial energy and engineering firms to emerge as viable energy service companies (ESCOs) which will be prepared to carry out the investments in improved energy efficiency on a sustained basis. After successful project completion and barrier removal, the total CO2 emission reduction will be 4.2 million tonnes.
