SIDBI has introduced a new scheme called the Sustainable Finance Scheme for funding sustainable development projects that contribute energy efficiency and cleaner production but not covered under the international or bilateral lines of credit. All sustainable development projects such as renewable energy projects, Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) star rating, green microfinance, green buildings and eco-friendly labelling, etc. are applicable for the scope of this scheme.
The following are the main goals of the Sustainable Finance Scheme.
The scheme develops the entire value chain of energy efficiency (EE)/ cleaner production (CP) and sustainable development projects that lead to necessary improvements in EE/ CP/ sustainable development in the MSMEs that presently not covered under the viable financing lines of credit.
The rate of interest applicable would be the standard lending rate by the credit rating of MSMEs.
The acceptable standards for this scheme are as follows
Suitable assistance using term loan or working capital is granted to the ESCOs that implements EE/ CP/ Renewable Energy Project. To be eligible for this grant, the ESCO must be an MSME or otherwise the unit to which it renders its services has to be an MSME.
