Funds for: Supporting innovation and entrepreneurship in the field of energy transition in Lebanon
Main beneficiaries: International organisations, NGOs

Priorities and funded actions:

Objectives
* Address job creation and growth in support of Lebanon’s stagnated economy (in line with the first priority sector of the Single Support Framework for EU Support to Lebanon 2017-2020), while supporting Climate Change Mitigation in Lebanon;
* Promote innovation, entrepreneurship and job creation in support of Lebanon’s clean energy transition and Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs) for the energy sector

Priorities
* Lot 1: Encourage synergies between green entrepreneurs, innovation promoters and SMEs (E-I-SMEs), as well as new business opportunities in renewable energy. Focus will be on various sources of renewable energy (solar, bioenergy, wind, etc.);
* Lot 2:
– Encourage the private sector, including Energy Services Companies (ESCOs), investing in alternative sources of energy, and therefore gradually contributing to reducing the environmental impact of production activities (industries, businesses) and de-carbonising the Lebanese economy;
– Build on national measures to promote the development of an ESCOs market and focus on various sources of renewable energy (solar, bioenergy, wind, etc.);
* Lot 3: Upgrade public and non-operational renewable energy equipment through the set-up of new (financially viable) repair and recycling processes (through assisting with the retrofitting of existing non-functioning installations and equipment), with a specific focus on solar energy, which is a renewable energy source that has been increasingly encouraged and developed these last years in Lebanon (photovoltaic (PV) solar panels and batteries)

Among financed actions
* For lot 1:
– Development of innovative products and/or implementation of industrial processes to produce green technology products, energy efficiency and/or small-scale renewable energy equipment, which contribute to promoting the green economy concept. Studies will also be eligible if they contribute to the design of the proposed action;
– At least three (3) pilot projects expanding existing and/or promoting new technologies/innovations and leading to green jobs. In addition, at least one (1) project developed under lot 1 should benefit directly to a municipality in its attempt to implement its Sustainable Energy and Climate Action Plan (SECAP)

* For lot 2: 
– Development of alternative sources of energy (small scale RE) and/or implementation of energy savings measures being prepared, realised and monitored by (at least one) ESCO(s) currently included in the most updated list of qualified companies issued by the Lebanese Centre for Energy Conservation;
– Technical assistance aiming at strengthening the technical and financial skills of the involved ESCO(s)

* For lot 3:
– Development of repair and recycling (financially sustainable) processes that could support the retrofitting of existing non-functioning renewable energy installations and equipment (focus is on solar (PV) panels);
– Implementation of concrete retrofitting plans for at least 3 (three) public buildings/installations in poor and remote areas with limited financial resources and having to cope with increasing demands on their services (e.g. public health centres, public schools, etc.)
