    Promoteur – Intermédiaire Financier




    Loan supporting energy efficiency and bio-economy development led by small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and mid-caps in Argentina, to be implemented by the state-owned Banco de Inversión y Comercio Exterior (BICE).

    Additionality and Impact

    The proposed operation concerns a loan to the state-owned national development bank of Argentina, Banco de Inversión y Comercio Exterior (BICE), that will finance loans to Small and Medium Enterprises (SME), mid-caps, and both private and public sector entities, to promote the expansion of sustainable energy and bio-economy projects.

    The operation addresses multiple market failures, such as negative carbon and air pollution externalities and access to finance. Through higher energy efficiency, demand for electricity and heat will be reduced, that together with alternative renewable energy production reduce carbon externalities and improves energy security. The project also addresses the failure in financial markets for SMEs and midcaps.

    The EIB's participation offers the Borrower longer term maturities of the funds raised and flexibility on drawdowns. It diversifies its funding base while mobilises resources from the private sector to crown-in.


    The project is expected to contribute to the achievement of EU priorities, the EIB climate and energy policy goals, and to national targets for decarbonisation set in Argentina while covering several SDGs.

    Additionally, the project has a specific gender focus. Increasing women's contribution to the employment and entrepreneurship brings economic and social benefit by unlocking potential growth and reducing poverty.


    Financing to the Republic of Argentina to support SMEs and mid-caps that develop sustainable energy and bio-economy investments. Resources will be channelled through the state-owned financial entity "Banco de Inversión y Comercio Exterior SA" ("BICE").
