    Promoter – Financial Intermediary




    The project consists in an investment into a Fund that will invest primarily in the renewable power, energy storage, and energy efficiency industry sectors in Latin America and the Caribbean.


    The Fund will focus on renewable energy projects and related infrastructure in the Latin America and Caribbean region. The region is highly vulnerable to the negative impacts from climate change and the region's energy matrix must further diversify to withstand the new climactic reality. The proposed Fund will provide liquidity to project developers that currently face equity funding constraints.

    Environmental aspects

    Details of the Fund's environmental and social due diligence procedures for ensuring compliance with national regulation, the principles of relevant EU Directives and EIB' Environmental and Social Standards, as well as the capacity of the Fund Manager to assess and monitor environmental and social risks and impacts, will be reviewed during appraisal,. The Fund will be required to develop an environmental & social policy and establish the appropriate management systems to comply with the environmental and social requirements of the Bank. The assessment of the environmental and social impacts and risks will be part of the standard due diligence process that the Fund will have to carry out for each underlying investment, thereby ensuring that the portfolio and these investments are in compliance with national law and in line with the principles of relevant EU environmental legislation as well as the EIB Environmental and Social Standards.


    Some of the companies in which the Fund will invest may have a status of contracting entity, being concessionaire. In these cases, the Bank will require the Fund Manager to take all the requisite measures to ensure that contracts for the implementation of the projects financed by the Fund will be tendered in line with the principles of EU Directives on public procurement and/or concessions. For the other cases, investing in private companies not concessionaries, the EIB will require the Fund Manager to take all the requisite measures to ensure that contracts for the implementation of the projects financed by the Fund follow fair and transparent procurement procedures and satisfy the criteria of economy and efficiency.
