Scaling up the private financing for energy efficiency (EE), for achievement of EU2030 goals
In order to meet the EU energy and climate targets for 2030 for transition to a low carbon economy, the EU faces an investment gap of €150 bn.of additional investment/year. Europe lags behind this goals achievement. A main reason is the negligible private financing. So, the private capital is therefore key.

Ready underwriting financial model, operational, tested in practice. It should be developed into a user –friendly software platform. It will facilitate the banks, improving their operational capacity, for easier and at lower transaction costs identification of bankable projects (less staff, less time, less technical outsourcing). Thus even smaller projects (the larger part of the building stock in EU, responsible for 36% of CO2 and 40% energy consumption) will become attractive for the banks. The solution can be used in all EU member states, reaching each bank, in each town. As a result, the number of implemented EEPs will rise significantly.
