Conference on energy efficiency in Brussels
Innovative financing for energy efficiency and renewables: feedback from successful projects
On october 8 a conference will be held in Brussels concerning innovative financing for energy efficiency and renewables. Succesful projects will give their feedback based on user data. Patrick Boucneau, sustainable development coordinator, Province of Limburg, and Dirk Schreurs, Head of RUE, Infrax – both involved inEscolimburg2020, will speak about the project.
Up-scaling investments in energy efficiency and renewables is a major challenge to meet the European Union’s energy targets for 2020. Lack of public resources requires new approaches to investment. Local and regional authorities have a key role to play in mobilising stakeholders, developing a project pipeline and creating the business case for attracting private investment.
This shift to innovative financing approaches is supported by the European Union’s Intelligent Energy Europe and Horizon 2020 programmes.
This conference will focus on the detailed presentation of 8 successful projects across Europe, which are developing new ways to set up and finance investments in public buildings, street lighting and housing.
Local and regional authorities will have the opportunity to learn how to concretely implement similar approaches in their own territories.
Place to be: Husa President Park Hotel, Boulevard du Roi Albert II 44, 1000 Bruxelles
