Save the date: CITYnvest final conference on the power of innovative financing
Boosting investment for sustainable building renovation is vital for achieving a clean energy transition in Europe. This is particularly true for buildings as they are responsible for 40% of European primary energy consumption and 36% of CO2 emissions. The problem is: there is no easy way for cities to access financing, including from the EU.

To make it easy, and to raise awareness on potential barriers and success factors, we will share with you a set of policy recommendations at CITYnvest’s final conference, in Brussels, on 4-5 December 2017.

The conference will sum up all you need to know on innovative financing models for energy efficiency building renovations. There will also be interactive round-tables where you can exchange and learn about the implementation of CITYnvest projects.

This event will bring together experts from across Europe, as well as representatives local governments and from the European institutions.

We also invite you to exchange with us on social media, using the hashtag #financelocalEE. For more information, please contact CEMR's Project Officer for CITYnvest, Maria Giovanna Zamburlini.


CITYnvest supports local and regional stakeholders in identifying suitable financing solutions for energy efficiency renovation in public buildings, for instance, by offering information on how to prepare bankable projects.

In only 3 years, the project has trained over 650 local governments and provided them with practical step-by-step guidance on innovative financing models like Energy Performance Contracting (EPC), Thirds Party Financing (TPF), revolving funds or cooperative models.
