Innovative financing schemes for energy efficient public buildings - symposium

Written by Energy Agency Styria

13th June 2019, Graz - Using innovative financing schemes for up-grading the energy efficiency of public buildings can be one key activity to fulfill the goals of the European Energy Performance of Buildings Directive on a municipal level. Alternative financing approaches such as public private partnerships, energy performance contracting and crowdfunding as well as the ELENA-initiative from the European Investment bank provide new instruments to transform public buildings to nearly zero energy buildings and reduce the strain on public budget.
