Finance and Technology Transfer Centre for Climate Change (FINTECC)
The FINTECC programme helps companies in participating European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) countries implement ‘climate technologies’. This includes technology for energy efficiency, renewable energy, water efficiency and materials efficiency. Climate technologies reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and/or lead to increased climate resilience. Finance and Technology Centre for Climate Change (FINTECC) offers incentive grants for introducing eligible technologies, which are available as a complement to EBRD financing. The program also organizes technical support, provided by the EBRD and international consultants. To assist climate technology transfer within each region, FINTECC offers support to participating governments, by helping them to improve policy environments and legislative frameworks, further enabling organisations in their regions to adopt a wide range of climate technologies.
The EBRD then seeks approval of the financing. If the investment plan features eligible technologies, an incentive grant will be approved as part of the process. The client company may then implement the investment plan, including the eligible climate technologies. Lastly, once evidence of successful implementation has been provided, the EBRD reimburses the company, using the incentive grant.

Policy support is aimed at implementing legislative and regulatory reforms, with a focus on energy efficiency and renewable energy policies that lead to deployment of the best available climate technologies and equipment.
FINTECC Insights provide information, data and research on climate technology markets and policy. Documents have been created by the EBRD, in collaboration with our partner organisations and consultants.
