European Investment Bank (EIB)

Since the beginning of the COVID19 pandemic in early 2020, European Investment Bank (EIB) have committed at least USD 7.89 billion to supporting energy projects through new loans, grants, and guarantees according to their own reporting and other publicly available information. This public finance includes:

  • At least USD 651.30 million for fossil fuels without conditions
  • At least USD 2.56 billion for unconditional clean energy
  • At least USD 3.55 billion for conditional clean energy
  • At least USD 1.13 billion for other energy

By energy type, European Investment Bank (EIB) committed at least USD 578.20 million to oil and gas (at least USD 578.20 million to unconditional oil and gas).

Finally, no public finance identified for multiple fossil fuels.

A considerably larger amount of new public finance from European Investment Bank (EIB) that is not at the project level may also benefit different elements of the energy sector, however this finance is not reported on in a way that can be disaggregated and therefore is not included in the database. This finance is largely made up of (a) investments in financial intermediaries (like commercial banks, private equity firms, or other development funds), (b) budgetary or policy support loans that are cross-cutting across many areas of government, (c) technical assistance, and (d) funding for associated infrastructure like ports or roads that will be primarily used for the transport of energy-related goods.

Many of these public finance commitments are part of programs that existed prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, however they only represent projects that were approved post-pandemic. Recovery spending via European Investment Bank (EIB) is cross cutting and it is quite subjective to disaggregate what projects are or are not recovery related.
