The power of innovative financing | Renovating buildings for energy-efficient cities

Boosting investment for sustainable building renovation is vital for achieving a clean energy transition in Europe. This is particularly true for buildings, which are responsible for 40% of Europe’s primary energy consumption and 36% of its CO2 emissions. Unfortunately, it is difficult for municipalities to access financing to remedy the situation.

To make it easier and to raise awareness of the barriers and opportunities in financing energy retrofits, Climate Alliance has joined forces with a number of other organisations via the CITYnvest project to develop a set of tools and policy recommendations. CITYnvest’s final conference from 4 to 5 December 2017 will introduce these recommendations and sum up all you need to know about innovative financing models for energy efficient renovations. Interactive round-tables will encourage lively exchange on best practice examples and the implementation of CITYnvest projects. Participants will have the opportunity to learn from experts and share lessons learnt other local authorities on implemented innovative financing models. A networking moment organised by the Covenant of Mayors Office will close the event.

Participation is free of charge but registration is mandatory.
