The training course was described and selected training modules demonstrated in the on-line e-learning system ( Ms Magdalena Rzemieniak gave examples of financial instruments, which are used in  project  partner  countries  and  regions.  In  particular,  funds  existing  in  Emilia Romagna  Region  (IT),  Burgerland  (AT)  and  Praha  Region  (CZ),  were  discussed. During  the  workshops,  work  teams  were  analyzed  in  various  case  studies.  The participants considered options for adapting financial instruments in the Lubelskie Voivodeship and in Poland. The best practice was considered examples of financial instruments from the Czech Republic. During  the  workshop,  the  participants  discussed  possibilities  of  wider  use  of financial instruments to support energy efficiency projects in Lubelskie Voivodeship and in around Poland. It was concluded that financial instruments will definitely play a more important role in the next programming period. However as they provide a lower support compared  to  grants,  an  administrative  burden  of  their  operation  have  to  be decreased for companies. A competition between grants and financial instruments must be avoided.
