Bank ABC, Mena’s international banking powerhouse headquartered in the Kingdom of Bahrain, has announced the signing of a financing agreement with Yellow Door Energy, the leading sustainable energy partner for businesses in the Middle East, Africa and beyond.

The signing ceremony was held at the Bank ABC branch at the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC).

In line with COP28 UAE’s Climate Finance objectives, the facility will refinance 25 solar PV assets, totaling over 42 megawatts, located on Majid Al Futtaim shopping malls across the UAE, Bahrain, and Oman.

The multi-million-dollar non-recourse long-term financing provides much needed climate finance to support renewable energy in the GCC and advance the just transition.

During the signing ceremony, Ammar Khalil, Senior Executive Officer, Bank ABC in DIFC, said: “We are pleased to partner with Yellow Door Energy to finance this solar PV project, which assists Majid Al Futtaim’s energy transition plans in the region.”
