One of the key barriers to sustainable energy projects is the difficulty to find adequate funding: huge upfront investments, lack of profitability for the private sectors, current lack of public financing... all this makes the problem of financing too often insoluble.
CECODHAS Housing Europe through this workshop, wanted to contribute to this consultation by calling a workshop. It will aim at answering the following questions:
- Are the current EU-level financial tools for energy efficiency in buildings effective (i.e. Cohesion policy funding, EEE-F) ?
- How could the uptake of EU-level funding for energy efficiency be improved?
- Where is EU funding still needed and what could be the future role of EU level financial instruments? (i.e. complement national and regional financial instruments) ?
