Project Description

FMO's Financing will be 100% used for Renewable Energy/Energy efficiency leasing contracts (100% green label). Most of the financing will be used for small scale solar panels, which offers an interesting market potential for leasing companies.

Through this project FMO indirectly contributes to Turkey's renewable energy targets. With this use of funds FMO contributes to GHG avoidance via its contribution to the energy transition from traditional sources to renewable sources. At the same time FMO offers long-term financing in local currency (TRY), which meets the funding requirements of such activities. It prevents foreign currency mismatches on FMO's clients, or on end client level.
