Outline AfDBs new Energy Department (ONEC) Renewable Energy financing instruments Overview of projects in the pipeline Contact Details
AfDBs new dept - ONEC New department created in 2010 for greater focus on climate change and related issues Mission: to spearhead the Banks lending and non- lending operations in the areas of energy and environment and climate change mitigation and adaptation Addresses climate change and environmental issues by incorporating them into Bank Group supported operations.
Optimizing financing instruments to meet Africas energy needs Senior Debt: tenor and currency adapted to project needs; debt arranging capacity: African Financing Partnership: DFI co-financing platform A-B Syndication Program: leveraging the AfDB Preferred Creditor Status Guarantees: partial risk, partial credit Subordinated Debt Equity: direct, or indirect (equity funds) Technical Assistance, incl. for carbon credits Sovereign loans: Concessional, Non-concessional Climate Finance
Climate change financing AfDB has set up important mechanisms: Clean Energy Investment Framework ClimDev-Africa Special Fund Africa Carbon support Project Seed Capital Assistance Fund (SCAF) Leveraging additional funds through: Climate Investment Funds (CTF and SCF) Global Environment Facility (GEF) Scaling up Renewable Energy Program (SREP) Financing Energy Services for Small-Scale Energy Users (FINESSE)
Supporting Africas access to CIF Clean Technology Fund Pledges of around US$4.7 billion for 15 countries selected based on current carbon footprint and carbon growth path. US$1.9 billion to be allocated to 6 African countries. Since 2008, WB and AfDB joint missions to African countries, and workshops as needed, led to preparation and submission of Investment Plans. Summary of the Investment Plans for African Countries prepared jointly by WB and AfDB
Supporting Africas access to CIF The Strategic Climate Fund The Pilot Program for Climate Resilience USD 730 million for 9 countries and 2 regional programs Pilot countries in Africa: Mozambique, Niger and Zambia Strategic Programs for Climate Resilience under preparation which will include projects to be implemented by the WBG and AfDB. The Scaling Up Renewable Energy Program in Low Income Countries USD 300 million for 6 countries Pilot countries in Africa: Ethiopia, Kenya and Mali No official work has started
Supporting Africas access to carbon markets Africa Carbon Support Project Goal: assist clients in regional member countries to access carbon finance that will improve the commercial feasibility of their investment projects Purpose: capacity building program for host country government agencies; development of appropriate project preparation documentations (methodologies) Beneficiaries: private sector investors, CDM community as a whole. Budget of USD 1.8 Million for 2 years
Financing instruments under development ClimDev Africa Goal: Contribute to sustainable development by implementing climate-resilient development programs that mainstream climate change information into development planning at all levels in Africa Purpose: To strengthen the institutional capacities of national and sub regional bodies to make and implement climate-sensitive policy effectively Jointly implemented by AfDB, UNECA and the AU Commission Initial budget of USD 135 Million
Financing instruments under development Sustainable Energy Fund for Africa Component ObjectiveInstrumentsManagement Project Preparation for AfDB Make potential RE generation/distribution projects bankable by offsetting proj. prep costs Grants (both Bank-executed and sponsor-executed) In-house at AfDB w/ support of long term consultants (2) Support to SMEs in RE/EE Leverage investment in RE/EE through PSD, particularly in SMEs Equity investment and technical assistance Outsourced to Fund Manager (PE-style)

This is a CSP-desalination project
Solar Thermal Power Station Morocco This plant combines solar and thermal power. It will produce up to 2000 MW of electricity with an annual saving of one million tons of oil.
