How to aggregate small energy investments into a large regional project?



Organisers: Krapina-Zagorje County, European Committee of the Regions and FEDARENE are pleased to invite you to the debate:


“How to aggregate small energy investments into a large regional project?”

As public funds alone are not sufficient for delivering ambitious EU energy targets, a different, concentrated approach relying on more market based solutions is required. The event intends to explore options in supporting the creation of regional platforms aiming at aggregating small energy efficiency projects to maximise the use of and access to the EFSI. The event will build upon most recent successful examples like ELENA supported NEWLIGHT project: the aggregation of street lighting reconstruction projects in 57 cities and municipalities from different regional authorities into a single project where total investment exceeded 20 million euros.
