Purpose of the Environmental and Social Impact Assessments

Ukraine Renewable Energy Direct Lending Facility (UREDLF or the Facility, later re-named Ukraine Sustainable Energy Lending Facility, USELF), in the amount of up to EUR 50 million, consists of debt financing to local enterprises in Ukraine for partial financing small and medium size renewable energy projects (solar, wind, small hydro, biomass and biogas). USELF is complemented by Technical Co-operation funding of up to EUR 5.72 million from the Global Environment Facility. This is a category B project with A-level consultation and strategic assessment voluntarily carried out by the EBRD to ensure solid environmental and social basis for its operations with renewables in Ukraine.

The SER highlights areas of Ukraine with renewable resources suitable for development and identifies the major environmental, social, and technical constraints for development, and provides background information for project-specific environmental and social due diligence, including environmental and social impact assessments.

There is a project summary document available for this project.
