No - it's easy and straightforward to use! Although TurSEFF loans do involve large amounts of technical and economic documentation, most of this work is carried out by the TurSEFF team, who are financed by the EU through EBRD.

  • Select one of the Participating Bank joining the TurSEFF programme;

  • Discuss the financial eligibility with the selected Participating Bank and share technical documentation with the bank to be forwarded to TurSEFF team for the technical eligibility;

  • Sign the Letter of Engagement;

  • The participating bank gives a 'green light'  to lend to your company.

  • TurSEFF team prepares a Project Assessment Report and/or undertake an Energy Study, if required.  

  • Sign a loan agreement with the selected Participating Bank.

  • Use the loan to make the energy efficiency investment. 

This is entirely up to you. The TurSEFF team will not advise you about which bank to select, nor about their interest rates, grace periods or other conditions. You should discuss this kind of issue directly with the bank.

TurSEFF team will:

  • independently evaluate your project from technical and economic perspective and prepare a package of documentation to support your loan application.

  • deliver free technical assistance services to your building or factory to help you in identifying potential energy efficiency opportunities
The currency of the loan depends on the agreement between the participating bank and the final borrower - EBRD has no requirements in this respect.
The TurSEFF loan conditions (interest rates, maturity, grace period and collateral) are determined between the Partner Bank and the Sub-Borrower.
