Smart City Project Due Diligence - Assurances that investors want to see: What to expect as a project developer?


If you are looking for investment into your Energy, Transport & Mobility or ICT focused Smart City project potential investors will seek assurances – the more uncertainty and the larger the scale of the investment required, the stricter. The assurances are provided by third party advisors, each with their own specialism, in a process called due diligence.


This webinar, prepared by EIP-SCC consortium members RdA Climate Solutions and DNV GL, explains what due diligence entails and how you can be best prepared at various stages of your project’s maturity.



  • Introduction to the EIP-SCC Project Maturity Level Model and where due diligence plays a role
  • Due diligence – what does a typical due diligence process looks like and why is it needed?
  • Parties involved in due diligence and various types of investors
  • Aspects of due diligence research – project risk categories
  • Examples of project due diligence work
  • Lessons learned for project developers
  • Q/A

Target audience:

Smart City project managers, project developers, city planners as well as financial officers working with Smart City projects,



The webinar will be introduced and moderated by Jorge Rodrigues de Almeida an EIP-SCC consortium member (RdA Climate Solutions) and be delivered by the following DNV GL experts:
