Focus Areas:
Financing energy efficiency
Type of Event:

This event, held in Brussels, will present a selection of on-going initiatives at local, national and European levels that are demonstrating that energy efficiency can be financed on a large scale through the mobilisation of private financing. Mostly funded under the Horizon 2020 Energy Efficiency programme, these initiatives provide inspiring insights on:


  • Aggregation and assistance for project development: the event will feature successful projects developing an investment pipeline at local and regional levels, which can be adapted and replicated at a large scale across the EU
  • De-risking energy efficiency investments: the event will present the key initiatives in Europe that are making energy efficiency increasingly attractive for the financial sector through policy dialogue, standardisation and benchmarking of investments
  • More effective use of public funding: the event will present successful experiences of innovative financing schemes using public funds to leverage private finance for energy efficiency.
