Joining forces to finance renewables: the investment platform model
About 75% of the EU building stock is not energy efficient. Four pilot regions are testing new solutions to leverage more citizen funding and spread the culture of energy transition.
Citizen funding market assessment report
The objective of this report is to analyze existing experience where public financing instruments (PFI) were used to support the set-up of Citizen Financing Schemes. The report explores financial cooperation between public authorities and cooperatives/crowdfunding platforms by assessing the strategic and operational considerations of combining public funds with citizen funding through Public Financing Instruments and presenting several case-studies that could be used by Pilot Regions as a first step when developing their CFs4EE Financing Scheme.
