The potential for mainstreaming energy efficiency financing will be addressed by the PROPEL consortium by creating a single, holistic resource centre in Europe, which will be maintained and has ALL the critical collateral and resources required to develop, sell, contract and finance sustainable energy projects at the required scale. The PROPEL project will build on the consortium’s significant ownership of, and access to, the full range of necessary standardised financing collateral, to deploy this collateral in the market while at the same time, firmly establish an industry association, the Sustainable Energy Finance Association (SEFA), which will act as THE knowledge and resource centre for the mainstreaming of finance into sustainable energy assets, not only during the project’s lifetime but long after its completion. The PROPEL project will develop an integrated ecosystem of financing collateral and relevant actors, which together will drive the market for sustainable energy assets forward. PROPEL will focus on building and testing this ecosystem in four countries (Belgium, Greece, Italy, Netherlands), reaching out to a minimum of 400 EE projects developers (supply side), 50 end-client representatives (demand side), and 30 financiers (banks and financial funds). PROPEL is expected to trigger €20M of investments into EE Projects within the project duration, leading to 40,46 GWh of annual primary energy savings and 10’890 tCO2 savings. These impacts are estimated to grow 25 fold within the 5 years after the project, due to PROPEL’s aim at creating a long-lasting eco-system, which will be hosted by SEFA. The PROPEL consortium has a wealth of expertise in developing standardised collateral and putting together the building blocks for development of a single ecosystem of collateral and actors that will enable and facilitate the scaling up and acceleration of financing to the sustainable energy market.
