Sustainable Energy Finance Facility (SEFF)

Objective and activities

This project has provided incentives for private sector companies to invest in sustainable energy measures. The activities addressed both sides involved in the credit transactions. Bank officials gained expertise in assessing the risk and creditworthiness of clients that require financing for sustainable energy projects. Companies became familiar with bank requirements and learned how to develop bankable projects. The activities were accompanied by an information campaign to make relevant actors aware of the credit lines for sustainable energy projects.
