Terminal evaluation of the UNEP GEF project: Development of a strategic market intervention approach for grid-connected solar energy technology (EMPower)

UN Environment Evaluation Office (2013)

This report is a terminal evaluation of a UNEP GEF project implemented between 2004 and 2010. The project was initiated to support utilities around the world in identifying opportunities to introduce large scale solar power in their energy-mix. The project activities were initially designed to develop the institutional and organizational capabilities necessary for identifying grid-connected SET projects with commercial potential, aggregate market demand, developing appropriate financing and risk sharing mechanism and investigating innovative procurement techniques to offer the aggregated demand to the market. This terminal evaluation has two main objectives to provide evidence of results to meet accountability requirements; and to promote learning, feedback, and knowledge sharing through results and lessons learned among the main stakeholders and partners of the project
