Learn How to Finance Sustainable Energy in Cities
The Covenant of Mayors, the European movement which involves local and regional authorities, has published a guide to provide cities with a comprehensive overview of the complex EU funding programmes.
The Quick Reference Guide on “Financing Opportunities for Local Sustainable Energy 2014-2020” is not a definitive document, as the EU funding mechanisms will continue evolving.
However, it offers a wide range of solutions for cities to co-finance the development or implementation of their Sustainable Energy Action Plans (SEAPs), including alternative financing schemes such as crowdfunding, revolving funds and green bonds.
