PPIAF, in partnership with The World Bank and The Energy Sector Management Assistance Program (ESMAP), recently undertook a viability study for investments in energy efficiency in the public street lighting sector of Rio de Janeiro and Belo Horizonte. These studies looked at the existing institutional and regulatory arrangements for the public street lighting sector in Brazil. The study identified enormous opportunity for investment in energy efficient public street lighting in Brazilian cities, consistent with current global trends. The study also revealed a number of systemic changes happening in the policy and market landscape in the Brazilian public street lighting sector making it particularly attractive for energy efficiency investments.
