The Kyrgyz Sustainable Energy Financing Facility (KyrSEFF) benefits form a new US$ 35 million credit line launched by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD). The credit line is complemented by more than €9.2 million in donor funding provided by the European Union’s (EU) Investment Facility for Central Asia.
