Climate Chance - 20.09.2016

How can towns and cities find innovative ways to finance energy efficiency in public buildings? Find out at CITYnvest’s workshop
Did you know? Buildings are responsible for 36% of CO2 emissions. In this context, investing in energy efficiency in public buildings is an urgent matter. But what can local governments do when they need to invest in energy efficiency yet lack the resources? This is the question we will explore at CITYnvest's workshop, on 27 September, alongside the Climate Chance summit.

Entitled ‘Innovative financing tools for energy efficiency in buildings in France: how to implement and replicate them?’, the workshop will pay close attention to French towns and cities. Its goal will be to present existing case studies and give guidelines to local governments on how to start creating and using innovative financing tools for energy efficiency in buildings. Representatives of organisations that have already developed these financing tools in France and abroad will explain how they work and how to apply and replicate them.

This will be followed by a discussion on how such financing tools can be replicated and used on a wider scale, and how to overcome existing investment barriers.
