There is actually a substantial movement towards increasing energy efficiency in developing nations. Since many countries do not have the large-scale infrastructure needed to create country-wide energy projects, solar and wind (for example) make a great deal of sense at the regional, city, or farm level. Through the U.N.’s Global Environment Facility (GEF) program, they have provided some grants and funds to modify energy systems in such places as China (http://www.un.org/climatechange/projects/china.shtml), Bolivia, the Czech Republic, etc.
There are plenty of governments in developed countries, that do provide assistance beyond policy development, however, including the Australian Agency for International Development (http://www.reeep.org/514.2770/environment-rural-development-thematic-research-group-australia.htm) and the U.S. Agency for International Development (http://www.usaid.gov/our_work/economic_growth_and_trade/energy/). Similarly, there are many non-profits that are working towards cleaner energy in developing countries.
