The Hellenic Development Bank of Investments (HDBI) has launched a program called Greek Green Funds for venture capital and private equity funds to finance businesses in the sectors of renewable energy production and technology, energy conservation infrastructure, sustainable development, and circular economy. The Greek Ministry of Development and Investments has said the program is expected to generate more than EUR 3 billion in investments.

The Greek Green Funds program, worth EUR 400 million, applies to businesses operating in Greece, and will run until the resources are exhausted, according to a call for proposals available on HDBI’s website. HDBI, formerly TANEO, has been mandated to manage the funds on behalf of the ministry.

Beneficiaries are to invest in new or existing SMEs or special purpose vehicles

The investment schemes financed by HDBI should be managed by private sector entities which will invest through equity participation, convertible bonds and rights-bearing bonds, in new or existing small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) or special purpose vehicles – companies set up to implement specific projects, according to the public call.

The call is open to all individuals and legal entities

Eligible to submit proposals to HDBI are all interested parties – natural persons or legal entities that intend to set up and manage such investment schemes.

Of the total resources, EUR 300 million will go towards all investments outlined in the definition of the Greek Green Funds, with the additional option to invest in non-energy infrastructure projects worth up to 30% of the total funds managed by an investment scheme.

Investment schemes exceeding EUR 100 million will receive up to 30% from the HDBI

HDBI will provide up to 30% of the investment, but no more than EUR 100 million, for individual investment schemes of EUR 100 million or more.

The remaining resources, EUR 100 million, are for funds that will have an upper limit of 30% for investments in solar or wind farms.

In this segment, HDBI’s participation will be 70% for schemes of up to EUR 30 million, 60% for projects of EUR 30 million to EUR 60 million, and 30% for those worth between EUR 60 million and EUR 100 million.
