The project aims at facilitating the dialogue between Italian public and private key actors on financing issues related to energy efficiency in the existing and new buildings sector and fostering collaboration, innovation and action through the establishment of a permanent national roundtable and connected events at local level. The project will set up a national roundtable with selected high level stakeholders in order to allow an in-depth discussion about current barriers and market failures, as well as share best practice and innovative financing solutions, with the goal to improve stakeholders’ awareness and knowledge and to identify the necessary political and regulatory framework. In parallel, local events and initiatives will be organized to engage as many stakeholders as possible, enabling capacity building, dissemination, replication activities and scale up of “success stories”: local actors are one of the main drivers of the energy transition and they bring forward tremendous opportunities for investment and innovation in a number of fields. National roundtables and local events will be organised in order to trigger a continuous and mutually reinforcing virtuous circle. The combination of a top-down and bottom-up approach will create the conditions for the development of tailor made support tools and instruments for the different stakeholders involved. The outcomes of the national roundtables and the local events will be analysed, and a roadmap for PAs and industry sector including strategic and operative recommendations for the implementation of financial instruments will be elaborated. Connections with past and current similar initiatives at EU level will be pursued throughout the project, in order to keep the national outputs in line with EU requirements and the provisions put in place to face the ongoing global situation. Finally, different strategies to maintain the roundtables as a permanent forum after the end of the project will be proposed.
