SUNREF Côte d'Ivoire is a system of loans and investment bonuses intended to finance Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy projects led by private sector actors. Following SUNREF West Africa, AFD signed new guarantee agreements with the banks Société Generale CI and NSIA for the opening of new green finance lines for a total amount of €17 million.
In order to highlight the importance of mobilizing companies and the private sector in the energy transition, the Technical Assistance of the Sunref program is entrusted by AFD to the General Confederation of Enterprises of Côte d'Ivoire. IED and GINGER-BURGEAP have joined forces to support CGE-CI in the coordination and animation of the program. In particular, it is planned to inform and support project leaders on the Sunref system and for the technical and financial set-up of their financing application files. The partner banks and CGE-CI will also be made aware of the markets and technical devices of renewable energies and energy efficiency.
SUNREF CI Technical Assistance is scheduled until January 2024.
