2010 annual report (English)

Energy Sector Management Assistance Program (ESMAP) provides advice to countries seeking energy solutions in this complex and rapidly changing terrain. It provides methodologies countries can use to analyze their current energy resource endowments and consumption patterns, as well as identify potential energy sources. The program also acts as a broker, connecting world-class experts with decision makers charged with charting new energy paths. This year, a review of ESMAP's portfolio provided a scorecard on results and impacts on activities carried out since fiscal year 2009: 1) ESMAP has supported more than 200 analytical and advisory activities, with about US$50 million in grants disbursed; 2) seventy ESMAP activities influenced about US$16 billion in World Bank Group (WBG) financing for energy projects in developing countries; and 3) over 30 countries developed energy strategies, policies, institutions, or new legislation and regulations based on analyses and recommendations provided by 38 ESMAP activities. Over the past year, we have focused on building longer-term strategic partnerships with countries and regions to achieve 'win-win-win' energy solutions that are at once pro-poor, pro growth, and climate-resilient.
