GEF Photovoltaic Market Transformation Initiative (PVMTI) Al Amana & Noor Web


Titre : GEF Photovoltaic Market Transformation Initiative (PVMTI) Al Amana & Noor Web

Pays : Maroc
Localisation : The project encompasses the introduction of a micro-credit scheme by Al Amana to support the purchase of PV systems by private households in the Taroudant region of Morocco, with an option to expand into additional areas throughout Morocco.

Planned Start Date : 2002-08-09

Identifiant IATI : XM-DAC-903-SPI-508073

This PVMTI subproject will facilitate the introduction of a micro-finance credit scheme to accelerate the uptake of Solar Home Systems (SHS) under a Fee For Service (FFS) scheme sponsored by the Office Nationale de lÉlectricité (ONE) in the Taroudant region of central Morocco, and the parallel introduction of consumer credit for a range of smaller SHS. Al Amana, a leading micro-finance institution, will provide a range of credit packages to buyers of SHS in partnership with Noor Web, or other IFC approved service suppliers ; Al Amana will also extend credit to local micro-entrepreneurs acting as agents of Noor Web. IFC will provide a partial credit guarantee for Al Amana, so that it can access debt financing for the project from Banque Régionale Populaire, Rabat (BRP), Morocco. In addition, the Corporation will provide a credit guarantee on behalf of Noor Web, in order to secure funding from BRP for the expansion of its infrastructure under the project.

This is a project financed by the IFC/GEF Photovoltaic Market Transformation Initiative (PVMTI). The Global Environment Facility (GEF) has provided US$30 million in concessional funds to IFC to support investments in private sector projects to encourage market development for photovoltaics. PVMTI aims to address market barriers by making available appropriate financing and stimulating business activity, accelerating PV penetration to achieve reductions in greenhouse gases. By harnessing the innovation and discipline of the private sector in designing and implementing PV projects, IFC is helping to shift the design and financing of PV market activity to a more sustainable and replicable private sector context.

By investing PVMTI funds in the project, IFC intends to support the demonstration of a successful and replicable business model for the Moroccan, as well as other developing country PV markets
