European Union Commissioner for Neighbourhood and Enlargement, Olivér Várhelyi said, “Our longstanding cooperation with the EBRD is extremely valuable, including in the domain of green finance where the bank has important experience. In Egypt and Morocco as well as in the Eastern Partnership countries, our joint support will help to step up energy-efficient and renewable-energy investments in the private sector, thus helping to build sustainable economies.”
Climate finance is a crucial instrument for green investments, to increase the use of renewable energy and to build a low-carbon future, especially at a time when the coronavirus pandemic and the drop in fossil fuel prices threaten climate action progress. The EBRD and the EU via Team Europe are committed to accelerating a green recovery in the countries where they work together.

In Egypt, a €24.8 million grant from the EU will support the EBRD’s Green Energy Financing Facility (GEFF), which focuses on supporting energy-efficient and renewable energy investments through local financial institutions for lending on to private companies.
Similarly, in Morocco, GEFF will benefit from a €21.1 million EU grant that will allow local businesses to invest in green technologies. Beneficiaries will reduce their costs by implementing climate adaptation measures, energy-efficient and renewable-energy technologies, thus also improving their overall competitiveness.
