The climate targets are increasingly ambitious and the scale of the challenge faced by local and regional authorities all across Europe requires increased use of other-than-subsidies financing instruments for investments in sustainable energy and low-emission mobility.
By introducing a variety of innovative financing instruments, the webinar will showcase the opportunities to get an in-depth understanding of their practical use through best-practice exchange with peers across Europe under a capacity-building project PROSPECT+.
In this #H2020Prospect webinar, you will get an overview of:
✔️ the innovative financing instruments available to local authorities across Europe,
✔️ best practice examples,
✔️ the Prospect+ free capacity-building programme and how you can benefit from it, ✔️ the latest opportunity to join the project as a mentee.
The Capacity-Building Programme will focus on innovative financing for energy and climate actions with a strong focus on the crucial aspects of capacity building, decision-making and replication processes.
To reduce the dependence on subsidies, the project offers innovative financing schemes that are often more flexible and quicker solutions:
• Citizens Finance: crowdfunding and cooperatives
• Energy Performance Contracting (EPC)
• Internal Contracting
• Green Bonds
• Guarantee Funds
• Soft Loans
• Revolving Funds
