Description/achievement of initiative
Meet the energy needs of beneficiary countries in Central Europe, Eastern Europe and Central Asia as they make the transition to low-carbon energy solutions; promote energy efficiency and the development of renewable energy.
The TaiwanICDF makes a contribution of US$80 million to this Green Energy Special Fund and the operation and implementation will be administrated by the EBRD. GESF proceeds are offered on a subsidized basis to promote the take-up of advanced, high-efficient technologies by municipal or regional governments, instead of cheap but less energy efficient products.
