Webinar – Supporting EPC market development through EPC Facilitation Services

Organised by FEDARENE
The Streetlight-EPC project has created demand and supply for Energy Performance Contracting (EPC) in 9 regions by setting up regional EPC facilitation services and supporting projects towards implementation. The facilitation services provided comprehensive support to municipalities (including members of the Covenant of Mayors) and (potential) ESCOs. In the frame of Streetlight-EPC, 30 projects have already been implemented using a variety of EPC models and 10 more with other financing or operational models. In total, 20.4 million Euro have been invested so far.

INFINITE Solutions Training on innovative financing schemes

Organised in the framework of the INFINITE Solutions project coordinated by Energy Cities.

Although many cities and regions have engaged into the energy transition, financing sustainable energy measures remains a great challenge. Some project investment costs are high, and covering them by using only municipal budget and traditional financing mechanisms is difficult.

Local and regional authorities have to be resourceful and open-minded to invent and test new financing mechanisms, business models, organisational structures and partnerships to make their sustainable energy projects happen. This requires strong technical, financial, legal and coordination skills and expertise in local authorities.

Join us to learn how to develop and implement three innovative financing schemes that have been tested by 11 European cities and regions!

The training session will be preceded by a half-day study visit on 22 February afternoon, guided by the Brussels Capital Region who developed the Brussels Green Loan.
