AMER organized a workshop about BCI SUPER Credit Line

AMER and UNIDO held a workshop whose main objective was to provide detailed information on the BCI SUPER Credit line recently launched in the national market. The workshop main objective was to deepen any doubts about this financial product, as well as to explain a better understanding of illegible technologies in the areas of (i) support to the agricultural value chain, (ii) photovoltaic systems for the commercial sector and (iii) transformation of organic waste into energy.

The Towards Sustainable Energy for All in Mozambique (TSE4ALLM) project is funded by the Global Environment Facility (GEF) and was approved in 2017 as part of investments whose main objective is the mitigation of climate change. In addition to the USD 2,851,384 grant, this project has co-financing from public and private partners in the amount of USD 11,284,997 and will be implemented by UNIDO in 48 months.

During the workshop, it was mentioned that the main objective of this credit line is the market-based dissemination of integrated renewable energy systems for productive uses in rural areas of Mozambique, through specific actions around the following components:

  1. Establishment of a favorable policy and regulatory environment
  2. Institutional capacity building and knowledge management
  3. Demonstration and massification of technologies
  4. Monitoring and evaluation

The development of the BCI SUPER credit line was carried out by UNIDO in partnership with BCI and FUNAE and is included in the activities of component number 3 representing a contribution to the removal of one of the most important barriers affecting the private sector involved in renewable energy projects, namely, access to attractive financial mechanisms that are within reach of the target audience, in this case rural communities. Detailed information about the TSEE4ALLM project as well as the form for expressions of interest for the credit line can be found at www.tse4allm.org.mz.

During the workshop, the speakers made themselves available to clarify any question directly through the addresses given in the presentations or channeling any doubts through AMER.
