Basic information about the Technology Catalogue

The Technology Catalogue is an online shopping-style platform that helps vendors of green technologies to connect with businesses and homeowners. The platform is vendor driven for the registration of technologies that perform beyond current market practices. Experts hired by the EBRD verify the performance and availability of these technologies before they are listed. These best-in-class technologies from around the world result in clearly identifiable efficiency gains and serve as a basis for market-specific ‘Technology Selector’platforms.

The EBRD Technology Catalogueis an online directory of high-performing technologies with environmental benefits. Global technologies successfully listed in the catalogue are technically eligible for EBRD’s GEFF financing via local financial institutions. This streamlined process helps reduce transaction processing times, particularly for small-scale investments commonly implemented by households and SMEs. Local technology vendors are encouraged to register their technologies with this tool to make the best ones more visible to prospective clients on the ground. If an eligible technology has no registered vendors in the country, local financial institutions can encourage imports via the EBRD ‘Green’ Trade Facilitation Programme. Performance requirements for technologies and vendors are reviewed on a regular basis, in consultation with the EBRD, and adjusted to reflect market developments.

Filtering the Technology Catalogue by country identifies the technologies that meet the minimum performance criteria for that country. These technologies are eligible for EBRD GEFF finance, but not all these technologies may be available through local vendors in that country.

To see the eligible technologies available through local vendors, go to the Technology Selector for your chosen country.
