Sustainable Energy Investing and Financing Activation

Project description

Increasing investments in sustainable energy projects

Investments in the energy sector require large amounts of capital. This is why it is important to increase private equity investments for the industrial decarbonisation of the built environment. With this in mind, the EU-funded SEIFA project will focus on the investing and financing of deep renovation industrial projects, energy supply facilities and energy service companies. Taking an investors-first approach, it will emphasise the environmental impact in terms of decarbonisation rate and risk-adjusted rate of return. The project will create a methodology for the sustainable energy investment securitisation and a detailed roadmap for the secondary market for sustainable energy. This is expected to result in EUR 500 million for sustainable energy projects provided during the project’s duration.

Objective

The project of the Sustainable Energy Investing and Financing Activation (SEIFA) will create incentives to increase private equity investing for the industrial decarbonisation of the built environment. The SEIFA project is focusing on investing and financing of deep renovation industrial projects, energy supply facilities and energy service companies. The investors-first approach will be held with an emphasis on the environmental impact in terms of decarbonisation rate and risk-adjusted rate of return. The new financial schemes to incentivise private individual and institutional investments to sustainable energy projects will be established. Innovative financing schemes will include sustainable energy investing risks metrics and benefits. The network of regional/national project aggregators will be established. Investment pooling and proposed investment vehicles will let achieve lower transaction costs. The financial software tools will be provided for the energy efficiency measurement, quantification and evaluation of additional benefits of sustainable energy investing including decarbonisation rate, increased asset value, impact on investor reputation, and for investment rating and ranking. The detailed methodology of the sustainable energy investment securitisation and detailed roadmap for the secondary market for sustainable energy investing will be created. Initial milestones of the secondary market for sustainable energy investing will be accomplished during the project duration. The planned project duration is 30 months. At least 500 million Eur for sustainable energy projects will be provided during the SEIFA project duration and it is expected that 5 billion Eur mark will be reached during the 5 years after the project completion. The SEIFA project platform will greatly increase the attractiveness for the financial sector to sustainable energy investing across Europe and beyond.
