Energy efficiency, renewable energy and landfill gas recovery projects across Eastern Europe are set to receive a fresh influx of cash with the launch of a carbon fund dedicated to the region. The European bank of reconstruction and development (EBRD) and European investment bank (EIB) announced a €165m fund on Wednesday based on contributions from six countries and six companies.

Earlier this year the EBRD announced a separate sustainable energy initiative for the region (EED 24/05/06). See press release.
