Project Description
The project consists of a loan to QNB Alahli ("QNBAA") for up to USD 40 million under the Egypt Sustainable Energy Financing Facility Framework ("EgyptSEFF"), out of which up USD 20 million is expected to be co-financed by the European Investment Bank ("EIB") under the same conditions. The operation will enable QNB Alahli 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 one of the first projects under EgyptSEFF and follows a pilot project with the National Bank of Egypt. The project will generate transition impact by promoting expansion of lending into energy efficiency and renewable energy in Egypt. It will have positive demonstration effects particularly with respect to utilising financial intermediaries for energy efficiency and small renewable energy investments.
