6 Key issues for financing Sector issues – tariff levels, consumer payment discipline Project issues – cost, technology, risk Contractual arrangements – balance of risk between the sponsor and contractor Government support – is there government support for the off- taker and for other contractual obligations? Legal framework – is the legal framework enforceable? dispute resolution? changes in law? Regulatory framework – is their independent regulation of the sector?
7 EBRD’s Sustainable Energy Initiative The Initiative in the Western Balkans includes: –Western Balkans Sustainable Energy Direct Financing facility (WeBSDEFF) – an investment facility of up to € 100 million to provide direct lending for energy efficiency and small renewable energy projects in the Western Balkans region.
