On February 22nd, Aleksandar Ranđelović from Crimson’s GEFF Serbia Leasing team presented opportunities for financing climate and renewable energy investments through the GEFF Serbia Leasing facility at a conference on generation of electricity through solar photovoltaic panels (solar PV), organized by the Belgrade Chamber of Commerce. Mr. Ranđelović noted that GEFF Serbia Leasing supports investments made by Serbian businesses of up to EUR 300,000 for “simple” projects (those that do not require an assessment) and up to EUR 2 million for “complex” projects (requiring an assessment, which is performed by the GEFF Serbia Leasing team at no cost to the business). Additionally, Mr. Ranđelović provided an overview of solar PV projects financed to date through the facility and highlighted the EBRD GEFF Green Technology Selector (GTS), which is an on-line catalogue of best-in-class green technologies (equipment) and equipment vendors. The GEFF Serbia Leasing presentation, and those of the other presenters, can be found here.
The conference was attended by over 130 businesses, representatives of financial institutions (ProCredit, UniCredit) and relevant Government and donor support programmes. Following conclusion of the conference, participants had the chance to visit the GEFF Serbia Leasing booth to learn in more detail how the EBRD GEFF is supporting green investments in Serbia.
