Main objectives
The EBRD SEFF facility partners with local financial institutions such as banks, to establish sustainable energy financing channels. These partnerships help direct more finance towards investment opportunities where energy and other resources are used more rationally.

Main activities
Through SEFF, the EBRD extends credit lines to local financial institutions that seek to develop sustainable energy financing as a permanent area of business. Finance for sustainable energy projects is provided for two key areas: energy efficiency and small-scale renewable energy. Local financial institutions on-lend the funds which they have received from the EBRD to their clients, which include small and medium-sized businesses, corporate and residential borrowers, and renewable energy project developers.
