In Ghana, energy is costly and energy security is a major concern. Increasing the development of green energies and technologies is a key condition to a sustainable economic growth. SUNREF is designed to help businesses and households in Ghana to seize the opportunities of the ecological transition.
This innovative program is part of a worldwide initiative developed by AFD to mobilise public and private banks to finance private sector investments involving green technologies and sustainable energy. In addition, the EU is supporting the Programme by financing the technical assistance component, as well as providing an investment grant to eligible projects.
Together with local partner banks Calbank and GCB Bank, SUNREF Ghana is offering businesses, organisations and households an opportunity to access financing for sustainable energy projects, and assistance in structuring green investments.
