Investment Platforms: a tool to boost investments in energy efficiency
Time: 14 – 16
Investment Platforms backed by EU funds are investment facilities which typically pool smaller and/or higher-risk projects by geographic location or sector. This helps to better share risk, make it easier to attract private investors and eventually unlock financing for individual projects. By aggregating investment projects, Investment Platforms also reduce transaction and information costs, which in turn facilitate smaller tickets. The platforms itself can then provide loans and/or equity financing to the underlying projects, depending on their specific needs. Investment Platforms are being specifically promoted by the European Commission and the EIB as a valuable feature to boost investments.
This workshop will showcase some good examples of EU-backed Investment Platforms that are addressing the energy efficiency sector in various member states and could be replicated elsewhere in Europe. The event will be conducted in English and is being organised as part of the Sustainable Energy Investment Forums, funded under the EU Horizon 2020 programme and managed by CINEA.
