Powering economies, empowering lives

FMO finances long-term projects which power economies, promote the transition to a low-carbon system and safeguard energy security.

Power shortages are one of the biggest barriers to development for billions of people. Whether it is for cooking, charging cell phones or powering offices and factories, everyone needs affordable and reliable energy resources.

Energy is a key sector for FMO, especially in the areas of generation and distribution, with an emphasis on renewable energy. We have built up a strong track record of investing in energy projects across a range of technologies in Africa, Asia and Latin-America. We do not invest in coal or coal mining.

We offer a full range of financing solutions - (syndicated) loans and equity investments -  for energy generation and distribution projects, off-grid solutions, refurbishments and efficiency improvements. Our initial investments often motivate other development finance institutions and commercial banks to participate in the financing of such projects.

We are committed to promote the adoption of leading international standards in environmental compliance, land tenure, business integrity and social practices.
