On the 5th of March, the PROSPECT team is organising a workshop in Wels, Austria, in the context of the European Energy Efficiency Conference and the World Sustainable Energy Days. By providing a 'toolbox' of smart financing instruments and programmes, this interactive workshop will help participants find the right financing solutions for their sustainable energy projects. 

For those working on local and regional energy transition or those interested in financing sustainable energy projects, this workshop provides a quick and efficient way to learn about which instruments work in what contexts and how they can be successfully applied locally.

14.00 Green financing: unlocking the local energy transition

The local energy transition requires investments! Although investment capital is often available in public and private funds, bridging the gap to concrete project implementation remains a big challenge. Having a toolbox of smart financing instruments and programmes unlocks possibilities. Learn, in this interactive session, which instruments work in what contexts and how they can be successfully applied in your region or city.
