The REFINE project is delighted to invite you to attend its final event on Friday 3rd March at the European Energy Efficiency Conference as part of the World Sustainable Energy Days in Wels, Austria. The project will host a joint roundtable discussion with fellow H2020 project FinEERGO-Dom to focus on ‘Supporting EPC and energy efficiency service (EES) providers in decarbonising buildings’.
Speakers from the REFINE and FinEERGO-Dom projects will present their latest results in the fields of energy financing and building renovation. Core target groups that will benefit from this workshop include:
- EES Providers
- Financial institutions with a focus on green financing
- Facilitation service providers in the EES market
- EE policymakers
The roundtable agenda can be found below. Please note that this roundtable will be held in English.
REFINE is an EU-funded H2020 project that aims to contribute to the supply of sufficient and attractive financing sources for energy efficiency investments by enhancing the refinanceability of EES projects and amplifying the use of refinancing schemes in EES business practice. In order for the European Union to achieve its energy and climate goals by 2030, significant investment is required to make energy efficiency projects more attractive for potential investors and financial institutions. In that context, the EU-funded REFINE project has identified the lack of attractive financing options for EES projects as a major barrier to the development of a functioning, robust EES market in Europe.
REFINE has developed its solutions in collaboration with key stakeholders including financial institutions, EES providers, market facilitators and guarantee funds. Using their expertise, the REFINE solution aims to identify and alleviate the risks associated with refinancing for EES projects and enable EES providers to clean up their balance sheet, thus allowing for future investment in new projects.
FinEERGo-Dom is an ambitious 4-year project that refines and implements guaranteed financing schemes for energy efficiency and renewable energy in deep renovations of buildings in Poland, Austria, Slovakia, Romania, and Bulgaria. The project builds on the experience of the Latvian Building Energy Efficiency Facility (LABEEF), the original Building Energy Efficiency (BEEF) Facility deployed successfully in Latvia. LABEEF is based on an existing example providing 20 year Guaranteed Performance contracts to owners through an On-Bill payment scheme.
