Project Description
The project consists of a loan to National Bank of Kuwait-Egypt ("NBKE") for up to USD 40 million under Egypt Sustainable Energy Financing Facility Framework ("EgyptSEFF"), out of which up USD 20 million is expected to be co-financed by Agence Francaise de Developpement ("AFD") under the same conditions. The project has been developed under the EBRD Green Economy Transition ("GET") approach to scale up green financing. The operation will enable NBKE to support on-lending to private sub-borrowers for EE and RE projects, which are of particular relevance in the context of high energy intensity of the Egyptian economy. It is expected to be the first project under EgyptSEFF and follows a pilot project with National Bank of Egypt.
