    Up to EUR 75 million
    Up to EUR 200 million (to be appraised)

    Framework loan for the financing of eligible sub-projecs in Turkey in the fields of renewable energy and energy efficiency.

    The project would contribute to EU renewable energy and environmental policies (particularly climate change policies). It meets the Bank’s priority objectives for energy sector lending (renewable energy sources, energy efficiency) and would support a priority objective of the Accession Partnership with the EU.

    Environmental aspects

    The individual schemes could be categorised as Annex I or II-type projects under the EIA Directive, which would require respectively a mandatory EIA or a review by the competent authority for the need to conduct one. The Bank will assess the promoter’s capacity and procedures to ensure compliance with national and European environmental and biodiversity regulations as well as its capacity to support the Bank's Public Disclosure Policy.

    The Bank will review systems and procedures applied by the promoter during appraisal, including compliance with relevant national legislation and the principles of the EU laws on the subject. The Bank will ensure the underlying projects comply with the Bank’s Guide to Procurement.


    Before financing approval by the Board of Directors, and before loan signature, projects are under appraisal and negotiation. The data provided on this page is therefore indicative and cannot be considered to represent official EIB policy (see also the Explanatory notes).
