Innovative financing approaches: concrete examples from MLEI PDA projects

Charlemagne Building

Target audience

Local authorities looking to finance renewables and energy efficiency projects


This workshop focused on the experiences of four local and regional authorities funded by MLEI PDA (Mobilising Local Energy Investments - Project Development Assistance), an initiative of the Intelligent Energy Europe programme that supports local and regional authorities launch investments based on innovative, highly replicable approaches.

Representatives from each project presented how they are working to set up innovative financing solutions in different sectors:

‣  Citizen financing for community energy projects ( Low Carbon Hub, Oxford, UK)

‣  Energy performance contracting for public buildings (Graz Energy Agency, Graz, Austria)

‣  Bundling EPCs for municipal buildings ( Regional Council of South Osterdal, South Østerdal, Norway)

‣  Creation of a public ESCO to set up and finance EPCs in condominiums (Energies Posit’IF, Ile de France, France)
