4. What Works

  • Tested use of IPS vehicle – no problems

  • Tested strong social return versus weak financial return

  • Tested complex social proposition versus simple proposition

  • Tested attraction of tax relief alone

  • Successful project had single core activity, easy to grasp, with track record, and offered potentially a good return (c.f. Windfarm offerings via Energy4All)
