Investment support

Kazakh currency notes

As well as receiving financial support for their projects, EBRD clients are also eligible to apply for a FINTECC incentive grant. These capex grants are needs-based financial incentives for demonstration projects that implement the best available climate technologies, within a specific sector and country. 

Which technologies are eligible?

We will provide a preliminary assessment of a project’s eligibility. Whilst this is determined on a case-by-case basis, eligible climate technologies are always those with low market penetration and good replicability potential.

Examples of eligible climate technologies include:

  • Greywater recycling and rainwater harvesting
  • Applications of cogeneration and trigeneration systems
  • Advanced heat recovery systems in industrial applications
  • LED lighting and advanced energy management systems

The proportion of grant within the overall capital costs of a technology is usually calculated using set calibration criteria. Grants are normally also subject to an absolute cap. These details can vary slightly between regions. For specific information on investment support details in your country, visit each region's page:

How does the programme work?

The process

  1. Step 1

    A company approaches the EBRD with a specific investment plan and financing request.

  2. Step 2

    Having reviewed the investment plan, the EBRD provides the terms of a potential financing.

  3. Step 3

    The EBRD completes a screening of all energy, water and materials efficiency opportunities, relating to the proposed investment plan and the company’s operations. The Bank can also arrange a donor-funded technical audit, if required.

  4. Step 4

    The EBRD seeks approval of the financing. If the investment plan features eligible technologies, an incentive grant will be approved as part of the process.

  5. Step 5

    The client company implements the investment plan, including the eligible climate technologies.

  6. Step 6

    Once evidence of successful implementation has been provided, the EBRD reimburses the company, using the incentive grant.
