WeBSEFF and the SEFFs
WeBSEFF - the Western Balkans Sustainable Financing Facility - is a financing facility under which the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) provides credit lines to partner banks in the Western Balkans to on-lend to businesses and municipalities wanting to invest in energy efficiency and small-scale renewable energy projects.
WeBSEFF is part of the EBRD's Sustainable Energy Financing Facility (SEFF) family. To date, SEFFs have made available EUR 2 billion for financing projects through more than 80 local participating financing institutions in 20 different countries in the world.
WeBSEFF is part of the Regional Energy Efficiency Programme for the Western Balkans (REEPWB). REEPWB uses a combination of financing instruments (such as WeBSEFF), technical assistance and policy support to create a sustainable market for energy efficiency in the region. The programme supports energy efficiency for both private and public sectors.
