Developing and transferring an innovative Energy FInancing miX in order to activate private sector finance for increased investments in sustainable energy projects


Energy financing standard for national and transnational EE financing

The energy financing standard will be developed in the form of a catalogue of quality criteria with regard to alternative financing sources and financial feasibility of energy projects. Commonly agreed standards will be the basis for future action and a sustainable implementation of the financing mechanisms.

Training curriculum for capacity building trainings

The curriculum will include the outline both for the internal train-the trainer seminar as well as for the external training sessions. The curriculum will define quality criteria regarding the covered content, used training materials and teaching methods.

Individual gap analyses regarding innovative energy financing mechanisms for each partner country

The objective of the analysis is to support or adjust the preselection which was done at this time of the project more than 1 year ago. If the preselection proves to be no longer relevant this gap analysis will show and adjust the target parameters if necessary. The individual gap analysis will be elaborated by the PPs with methodological support from the WP lead. In particular, it will quantify the implementation gap addressing that available knowledge is not translated into action due to policy or operational barriers. The results of the gap analyses will be presented in the form of an approach for addressing identified barriers, political, regulatory, organisations, social, regarding the roll-out of these financing mechanisms.

Catalogue of evaluation methods for sustainable energy projects to be published as online report or database

As a compilation of evaluation methods and feasibility criteria for energy investments the catalogue will consider territorial differences in investment costs, energy prices and current capital costs and analyse the respective influence on financing options. It represents the energy technology-specific part of the E-FIX Toolbox.

Case study analysis of alternative financing of energy projects

PP will collect and elaborate on typical cases of energy project investment that highlight national financing structures and procedures that determine the relationship between energy project initiators and investors. It is expected that the analyisis will reveal different challenges and potential development paths for innovative financing mechanisms according to the finance frameworks in the partner countries.

Energy policy profiles for each of the partner countries

Energy Policy Profiles will summarise the status and further roadmap of implementation of EU energy directive and related national/regional regulatives. The Profiles will be published online and further will be used during the development of the E-FIX roadmap

Financing matrix concentrating on EE financing mechanisms and potentials

Overview of financing frameworks in place at national and regional level and an analysis of financing sources and relevant actors involved in energy project investments. The overview will be completed by an outline of local energy project initiators (private/public) and characteristics of typical energy projects developed in the partner regions.

Project logo and visual identity

In accordance with the communication strategy the partnership will generate a recognisable visual identity of the project which will further on be used in all project communication both internal and external.

Project website

The project website will be established by Month 6. IT will give an overview about the project objective and the partnership. The website will grow during the project duration from the simple presentation of the project idea and consortium to a detailed account of in-depth information, expert knowledge, webinars and project publications, publicly available to all interested visitors.

Ambassador platform launched

The E-FIX Ambassador Platform will be launched at the same time as the first capacity building training in the partner countries and as part of the project website. Training participants will be encouraged to join the platform and connect with other international stakeholders. The communication office will moderate the platform and provide input in order to facilitate online discussions and knowledge transfer.
