The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) plans to establish the Western Balkans Green Economy Financing Facility with a total of EUR 85 million to finance residential energy efficiency and small-scale renewable energy investments.

The consulting company will be required to establish a network of regional offices. It is also expected to engage a team of professionals with five years of previous experience in managing similar projects, relevant marketing experience, financial analysis and capital investment, residential buildings energy management, energy efficiency and renewable energy projects.

The assignment is expected to start in the first half of 2017 and will have an estimated duration of four years. The overall budget for the assignment is estimated at EUR 5.1 million, exclusive of VAT.

The EBRD states that the facility will take the form of credit lines which will be offered via participating financial intermediaries in Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, FYR Macedonia, Kosovo*, Montenegro and Serbia.
