The European Investment Bank (EIB) announces a EUR 150 framework million loan to Banco Santander Chile for financing projects contributing to climate change mitigation, especially large and medium-scale renewable energy schemes. These will include wind, solar photovoltaic, concentrated solar power and biomass projects and transmission lines for transporting renewable energy.
