WEBINAR SERIES - The Power of Energy Efficiency

13 March 2019 - 17 April 2019

13:00 - 14:00 GMT

The Power of Energy Efficiency

Our three-part webinar series for energy efficiency contractors will shine light on finance best practices and innovative financing structures, on the types of finance currently available, and on real investor requirements.

Overview

According to the European Commission, to meet our 2030 climate objectives we would require over 200 billion euros per year, and an increase in renovation rate from 1% to 3%. In this scenario, effective private investment is the key to meet these goals. Different forms of private financing have emerged in the last years to meet the needs of this growing market, but only a few are known to market players – who still struggle to find appropriate finance for their specific needs. Through this webinar series, we want to answer this call – and explore what money is available for which types of projects.

The question remains – how can energy efficiency experts tap into this potential and get projects off the ground? Which contract types work best for which types of projects (ex: according to technology type, payback time, investment size), where is the finance coming from, and how are deals structured? When is higher cost, off-balance sheet finance better than on balance sheet debt? 

Since the SEAF H2020 project – the Sustainable Energy Asset Framework – which ran from 2016-2018, Joule Assets Europe has been working as an intermediary between project developers and financiers with the mission of enabling all viable projects to reach deal closure and completion. Join us and other experts as we share our collective learnings from working in both the finance and energy efficiency landscapes, in an effort to untangle – and simplify - the energy efficiency project finance space. 

These webinars will take a bottom up approach, looking at contract types, sources of finance and actual finance available. The three-webinar series will run from mid-March to mid-April.

TOPICS COVERED: 

  • Energy Performance Contracting: Best practices from the Business, Municipal, and Financial perspective
