WP4: Energy efficiency financing strategies in
Central Europe

The WP focuses on creating and implementing a transnational strategy and dedicated financing roadmaps necessary to achieve EE goals, local market development and increase stakeholder engagement. New financial approaches are explored and developed with regards to public institutions which will move EE practices into the mainstream and daily practice. High initial costs, relatively long payback periods, credit risks and more efficient EE investments are the challenges that need to be addressed by different (or even combined) flexible financial tools such as grants, preferential or commercial loans, guarantees, bonds, tax incentives, EPC, etc. Moreover, technical considerations like different building sizes, locations and uses or diverse upgrade and retrofit needs, should be taken into account when planning and applying a long-term action. The WP will thus deliver a transnational strategy for EE financing in CE which will define, structure and review the existing energy financing solutions and models that are or will be in the future the important enablers for EE and energy savings in public infrastructures.
