Commenting on this transaction, Grégory Clemente, Proparco's CEO, said “Proparco is very satisfied to strengthen its partnership with the SREI Group and to support India’s ambitious policy of renewable energy development”.
Mr. Devendra Kumar Vyas, the CEO of SEFL, added: “We are happy to get the funding from Proparco, one of the leading European Development Finance Institutions. The funding reinforces our resolve to accomplish sustainable business growth by financing green technologies, and equipment which have a minimal environmental footprint.”
