Project Description

The EBRD is considering a Municipality Energy Efficiency Facility of up to EUR 10 million to BRD SocGen (BRD) to be on-lent by BRD to municipalities in Romania. The proceeds of the loan will be used by BRD to provide medium and long-term financing to municipalities and private ESCO companies for projects aiming to save energy. In addition, the EBRD is also considering a SME Energy Efficiency Facility of EUR 20 million. Both projects will be implemented under distinct frameworks already made public.

Transition Impact

The Municipality Energy Efficiency Facility will contribute to the transition process by maintaining an essential flow of lending to municipalities and private ESCO companies at a time when the availability of credit has been constrained. Transition impact potential also derives from the demonstration effect associated with the energy savings and will help improvement of costs of the municipality and private ESCO sector.
