Project overview

Smart Management and Green Financing for Sustainable and Climate Neutral Buildings in Central Europe

A climate-neutral central Europe requires a drastically reduced energy consumption of buildings. However, renovation is often costly and complex. The MESTRI-CE project introduces a new investment model to finance more climate-friendly buildings that guarantee sustainability. The model covers both the supply and demand side of the renovation market and builds on data collected and tools and green standards developed by the project.

Roadmap

1

Challenge

Technical, policy and financing barriers that tackle the slow transition of inefficient public and private buildings towards their climate neutrality.

2

Starting idea

Targeting both market demand and supply by bringing policymakers, project developers, financial institutions and investors at the same table to find common solutions for tackling slow rates of building renovation in all central European countries.

3

Main goal

Harmonisation and enhancement of sustainable building and green finance standards to increase the flow of energy efficiency investments in Central Europe.

4

Proposed solutions

Provide building owners with holistic digital solutions for sustainable management, building methods, and innovative financing models and methodology for (re)construction of buildings in order to reach their long-term goals of climate neutrality.

5

Transnational cooperation

The collaboration will enable project partners to combine complementary strengths, get the necessary research capacity and reach the wider public through high-visibility events. Associated partners who present key stakeholders will benefit from the project by learning from top experts in the sustainability of buildings.
