Argentine Efficient Streetlighting Program

Nine countries are included in a GEF-supported global Electric Lighting Initiative (ELI) and the project was complementary to the Argentina components, which did not include any activities in the SL sector. IFC was the implementing agency for the project through the World Bank, with GEF grant-financing for the project which comprised administration, financial and technical advisory services. The physical investments that were to be facilitated were to retro-fit municipal publicSL with more efficient and established technologies, and would be financed from a number of sources including commercial banks using eligible IFC credit lines, savings in energy costs, SL taxes and supplier/contractor/local government equity.
