- Expand S3IDF's market-shed;
- Introduce policy initiatives (e.g., sub-franchise agreements) for specific new investments;
- Tackle related issues mentioned for larger and longer gestation projects, which need such structuring and risk mitigation approaches.

- Implementation of 15-20 additional poverty alleviating and environmental benefits transactions with local financing (increased local financial-institution involvement) and expansion of the portfolio's market-shed;
- Replicable - but new to the portfolio - innovative financing/deal structuring arrangements and associated business models owning/operating pro-poor REES investments;
- Increased understanding of the poors' willingness-to-pay for energy services;
- Additional M&E and dissemination of lessons;
- New/additional international financial resource mobilisation for REES investments from socially, ethically and/or environmentally concerned individuals (including GHG offsets).
