The project contributes to EU renewable energy and environmental policies (particularly climate change policies) and several Sustainable Development Goals, especially SDG 7, affordable and clean energy.

    The project is expected to have limited environmental and social impact during construction and operation. The Bank will review the impact assessments and corresponding authorisation processes during appraisal, including a verification of compliance with the Bank's environmental and social standards.
