CrowdTuesday & Webinars

Apply for the Second Webinar on Capacity Building for European Public Authorities

by Sanja Lazic on 28.05.2021

We are excited to invite you to join us on June 3rd, for the second out of six webinars on capacity building for European public authorities that we are organizing as part of the ongoing CitizEE project.

The goal of the CitizEE webinar series is to guide and train European public authorities to scale up investments for energy efficiency in the building sector through attracting citizen private investments.

In the building sector, it is crucial that energy efficiency financing models are consolidated through innovative financing solutions that leverage the cooperation between all actors (project promoters, public/private financial institutions, end users), especially with citizens. Not only that, but it is essential to establish mechanisms that enable making more effective use of public funding, mobilising private financing towards large-scale energy efficiency programmes and helping to overcome specific barriers faced by energy citizens and communities’ projects wishing to invest in sustainable projects.

After the first webinar during which we discussed ways for European public authorities to scale up investments for energy efficiency, the second webinar will focus on some of the best practices on how public authorities (cities, municipalities and regions) can set up citizen financing schemes for energy efficiency. The webinar, starting at 13.00 until 14.30 on June 3rd, will also cover ways for crowdfunding platforms and governments to collaborate.
