KESH sh.a. Key Developments

The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development Provides EUR 218 Million Loan to Korporata Elektroenergjitike Shqiptare

The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) is supporting the modernisation of Korporata Elektroenergjitike Shqiptare (KESH), with a EUR 218 million loan to support a company restructuring and reform package. Helping KESH modernise and improve its financial standing, as well as building resilience in the face of climate vulnerabilities, is part of the EBRD's strategy to help the countries where it invests to address challenges of energy security and climate change. The EBRD loan will be sovereign-guaranteed and provide KESH with long-term financing which will reduce costs and increase liquidity. This will free up resources to allow the company to focus on the maintenance of existing assets and the implementation of a long-term investment and modernisation programme. Under a comprehensive reform package, KESH will also improve its corporate governance and operational efficiency. The implementation of these changes will allow KESH to comply with the requirements of relevant EU regulations in the energy sector. These provisions include the development of a power exchange, regional integration and tariff formation. The EBRD is also providing technical assistance from its own donor funds to help KESH implement climate resilience components in its daily operations and management.
