GCF-EBRD Sustainable Energy Financing Facilities Approved October 2016 Est. implementation period 15.0 years Est. completion date 02 February 2033
EBRD and GCF co-financed programme to deliver climate finance to the private sector at scale through Partner Financial Institutions across 10 countries.

Scaling up private sector climate finance is an urgent priority to rapidly put the world on a mitigation path leading to a 1.5°C outcome and enable vulnerable countries to move to a climate resilient pathway.

This programme will deliver climate finance at scale via Partner Financial Institutions (PFIs) in developing countries, which will fund over 20,000 scalable and replicable projects across industrial, commercial, residential, transport and agricultural sectors.

Sustainable Energy Financing Facilities is an on-lending programme that will provide credit lines to PFIs with the aim to create self-sustaining markets in the areas of energy efficiency, renewable energy and climate resilience.

The PFIs in the Programme will on-lend the funds to the borrowers such as MSMEs, special purpose companies and households for energy efficiency, renewable energy and climate resilience projects. Financing activities will be complemented by the provision of technical assistance (TA), both to the local PFIs and to the borrowers. This component will include capacity building of local PFIs and micro-, small- and medium-sized enterprises, project assessment and monitoring, and gender mainstreaming activities.

The project has an estimated lifespan of 15 years.
