Upcoming event: Financing Sustainable Energy Action Plans - 10 October 2013


In the 2014-2020 programming period, 20% of the EU budget will be earmarked for climate-related measures. More developed EU regions will have to spend at least 20% of their European Regional Development Fund allocations to energy efficiency and renewable energy projects. For less developed regions it will be 12%. European Social Fund will support the shift towards a low-carbon, climate-resilient, resource-efficient and environmentally sustainable economy, through reform of education and training systems, adaptation of skills and qualifications, up-skilling of the labour force, and the creation of new jobs in sectors related to the environment and energy.

These funds offer important sums to local authorities, regions and their associations. How to spend them efficiently? Could local authorities use them in form of grants or innovative financing instruments? Could it be a combination of both?
