© GEF10 September 2009: The Global Environment Facility (GEF) has published a report entitled “Investing in Energy Efficiency: The GEF Experience.”

The 28-page report highlights the GEF's 18-year history of investing in technology transfer and policy reform projects to reduce barriers to the adoption of energy-efficient technologies.

The report discusses its investment strategies for the US$850 million in direct funding and US$5.9 billion in co-financing it has used for 131 projects in energy efficiency over its history. The majority of the report focuses on the project models GEF uses to remove barriers, and the particular approaches these projects take through five project case studies.
