How to Drive New Finance for Energy Efficiency Investments

The latest report by the Energy Efficiency Financial Institutions Group (EEFIG) titled Energy Efficiency - the first fuel for the EU Economy. How to drive new finance for energy efficiency investments was launched in Brussels today.

The interim report of the group co-convened by the European Commission / Directorate-General for Energy Energy and UNEP FI focuses on the financing of energy efficiency in buildings in the European Union. The report is organised around the drivers of both supply and demand for financing of projects, the policy-led and market-led approaches and instruments to stimulate more investments in energy efficiency in buildings, as well as some interim recommendations to policy-makers.

The report was launched in tandem with the European launch of the publication Commercial Real Estate: Unlocking the Energy Efficiency Retrofit Investment Opportunity, a report by the Property Working Group of UNEP FI.
