RoundBaltic - Promotion of Smart Finance for Smart Buildings in the Baltic Region with focus on Poland, Latvia and Denmark

Project description

Improving energy efficiency investment in the Baltic region

The Smart Finance for Smart Buildings initiative aims to amplify energy efficiency investments in residential buildings. This will facilitate private investors to use EU grants as a guarantee and de-risk investments in the buildings sector. The EU-funded RoundBaltic project will provide a framework for energy efficiency investments in Poland, Latvia and Denmark, by establishing dialogue and supporting actions around the Smart Finance for Smart Buildings initiative. RoundBaltic will analyse how to improve existing methodology, development of strategies and action plans, proposals for enhancement of national policies and establishment of joint template documents and contracts for a better functioning market. It will also establish supporting actions to produce sustainable energy investments in participating countries, and assess the impact and the experience of the operations.


A main objective of the RoundBaltic project is to provide framework and catalyst for energy efficiency investments, incl. creating dialogue and enabling actions around the Smart Finance for Smart Buildings initiative and the financial pillars. The direct target countries are Poland, Latvia and Denmark, building on the activities of the Sustainable Energy Investment Forums initiative.
The action will develop a supporting framework with activities such as 1) analysing the possibility to upscale existing best practices, develop strategies, roadmaps and action plans, 2) propose improvements in the national policy frameworks and measures, and 3) develop jointly template documents and contracts for a better functioning of the market, and will implement Roundtables where stakeholders can learn from successful initiatives, and can provide input into the policy making. The consortium will pursue a combined approach of addressing the national level (framework conditions) and regional level (topics of relevance for the given regions).
Additionally, the project will develop enabling actions aiming to generate sustainable energy investments within the targeted energy efficiency areas of the call and will undertake in-depth evaluation of the impact gained as well as lessons learned of the operations in each target country. It will also provide networking and experience exchange among the stakeholders in each country as well as among the target countries where it makes sense. The project findings and achievements will be disseminated to relevant target groups, incl. other Baltic countries. Moreover, a small share of activities will be reserved to exchange with similar roundtables across Europe (coordinated by the Commission services).
