The US Agency for International Development (USAID) has invited potential applicants to submit preliminary information on projects to be included in its regional project called Investment in Energy. USAID’s project aims to support technically, commercially, and environmentally sustainable projects and help find investors or financial institutions to fund them.

The purpose of the invitation issued by USAID is to consider potential projects for pre-feasibility and feasibility studies, while projects for further assessment will be selected through a public call for applications. Initial information is to be sent to energyinvestmentDIR@bv.com or energyinvest@bv.com, by February 10, 2023.

The regional project Investment in Energy, whose launch in Serbia was marked in October, will focus on improving the bankability of the environmentally friendly production, transmission and distribution of heat and electricity, district heating systems, water supply and sanitation systems, and the energy efficiency of residential and commercial buildings, according to the invitation.

USAID has set aside USD 20 million for the project.

Projects will be selected in cooperation with banks, international lenders, and investors

Projects will be selected in cooperation with international financial institutions, banks, investors, and beneficiaries. The minimum value of a single project is set at USD 10 million, although projects worth less than USD 10 million could be considered depending on the interest of international financial institutions, according to the invitation.
