NEW FINANCE

NEW FINANCE will help accelerate new investment in energy efficiency and renewable energy sources in public buildings by increasing the confidence of key decision makers from public and finance sector to find and apply working strategies for the mobilization of private funding and better use of ESI funds. In order to reach this goal, the project will focus on effective replication of proven implementation models and smart networking activities equally involving stakeholders from public and private sector whilst capitalizing on a number of previous and ongoing similar initiatives.

The main objective of this project is to increase the confidence of public building owners and private investors to overcome the barrier in financing energy efficiency measures at local and regional level and thus help accelerate new investment in energy efficiency and renewable energy sources in public buildings. The NEW FINANCE specific objective is to support the development and implementation of innovative financial schemes that leverage ERDF and other public funds on private financial resources and lead to bankable and sustainable energy projects.

In order to reach these goals, the project will focus on effective replication of proven implementation models and smart networking activities equally involving stakeholders from public and private sector whilst capitalizing on a number of previous and ongoing similar initiatives.
