The starting point of this study was an ESMAP working paper (Meunier 1993) prepared by Bernard Meunier with support from Philippe Durand, Willem Floor, and Robert van der Plas, all of whom are gratefully acknowledged. Special thanks are due to Willem Floor for his advice and encouragement in the writing of this report.
Many thanks are also offered to Peter Ahm, Douglas Barnes, Dick Dosik, David Hancock, Dolf Noppen, Robert van der Plas, and Ernesto Terrado, and to Loretta Schaeffer, Mac Cosgrove-Davies, Anil Cabraal, and Frans Niewenhout of the Asia Alternative Energy Unit (ASTAE) team in the World Bank for their detailed, helpful, and tempering comments on an earlier draft of this paper and for the copious additional information they provided.
Publication of this report was managed by Paul Wolman; Caroline McEuen did the initial copy editing; and Carole-Sue Castronuovo carried out the word-processing tasks.
