Ascame general overview eib energy strategy Round Table Energy Tangier 3 may

  1. 1. General overview of the EIB energy strategy: focus outside the EU Juan Alario Associate Director Head of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy European Investment Bank Round Table ASCAME (Association of the Mediterranean Chambers of Commerce and Industry) 3 may 2014, Tangier 1
  2. 2. 05/05/2014 2 EIB mandates outside the EU: different objectives depending on the mandates, but the important ones related to energy are: Supporting climate action through the development of RE&EE projects Supporting economic growth through development of energy infrastructures Contributing to EU security of energy supply and energy market integration with neighbouring countries, particularly with the EU
  3. 3. 05/05/2014 3 EIB actions and instruments outside the EU Provision of financing (from senior loans to equity depending on the mandate) From External mandates From EIB own resources: Sustainable Energy Facility (EUR 5 bn) Support to specific initiatives: The Mediterranean Solar Plan; Sustainable Energy for All, the Western Balkans investment framework, etc. EIB manages technical assistance programmes to support project preparation and to develop new initiatives or financial instruments EIB manages specific financing instruments dedicated to energy (blending grants with loans and TA, equity funds, etc): GEEREF, EEFF, etc.
  4. 4. 05/05/2014 4 EIB and Energy Sector 15-20% of total lending 90% to EE, RE and networks Substantial technical assistance Significant part of Climate Action lending EIB’s Energy Screening and Assessment Criteria have been recently reviewed (July 2013) see our website (www.eib.org)
  5. 5. 05/05/2014 5 Energy Efficiency: EIB action Mainstreaming EE in all projects it finances Support to financial intermediaries and promoters to develop EE projects: TA and developing financial instruments, on its own behalf or in cooperation with Commission or other entities Develop specific instruments, often in cooperation with Commission: ELENA, Green for Growth, EEFF, etc
  6. 6. 05/05/2014 6 Energy Efficiency: EIB eligibility criteria Support of cost efficient investments and EE should be a significant element of the investment Streamlined approach to support small projects of national (regional) programmes Support roll-out of near zero energy buildings Support deployment of new and innovative EE technologies
  7. 7. 05/05/2014 7 Renewable energy: EIB eligibility criteria Mature RE, where costs are not expected to decline significantly (on-shore wind, hydropower, conventional geothermal, biomass for energy) Competitive with alternative considering environmental, security of supply benefits and cost of intermittence (if appropriate) Emerging RE, currently not competitive (off-shore wind, PV, CSP) Can be supported provided that have good prospects of competitiveness with alternatives Support RE at RDI stage
  8. 8. 05/05/2014 8 Priorities for Energy networks Electricity Smart grids and distribution programmes Transmission projects for RE integration Storage Gas transmission fuel to low-carbon economy LNG regasification Gas storage Import and interconnection projects Transmission and distribution networks especially where displaces higher carbon alternatives
  9. 9. 05/05/2014 9 Research, Developmetn and Innovation Accelerate deployment of low carbon technologies Support EU industrial competitiveness and growth Insufficient funding across the EU in energy RDI EIB priorities: Support implementation of EU SET-Plan technologies Provide TA to support sector Develop financial instruments in cooperation with the Europena Commission
  10. 10. 07/11/2013 10 Fossil fuel generation: introduction of a Emission Performance Standard Except for least developed countries and those formally indentified by the WB as Low Income countries
