When: 4 February 2020 (11.00-11.30 pm CEST) are open.
Discussant: Luís Couto, Co-founder, GoParity
Moderation: Oliver Gajda, Executive Director, EUROCROWD
Some 40% of total EU energy consumption is used by the building sector and 36% of the total EU greenhouse gas emissions come from buildings. Based on best practices, this webinar will provide insights into investment opportunities for citizens through crowdfunding platforms, allowing for more effective use of public funding with citizens' support.
The webinar is organised in the framework of EC co-funded CitizEE, which aims at developing, testing and evaluating citizen financing schemes for energy efficiency. Citizen financing mechanisms, such as crowdfunding or cooperative funding will be matched with public financing instruments. Both can be combined with Citizen Investment Platforms backed by the European Fund for Strategic Investments (EFSI).
