Financing Energy Efficiency Projects - Project appraisal and risk management - Public workshop in form of a Round‐Table‐Discussion

Wien
14.06.2018
14:00 to 18:00
Wohnprojekt Raum A, Krakauer Straße 19/45, 1020 Wien

The international market for energy efficiency projects is still largely untapped and one of the barriers is the lack of viable financing. While the collateral value of most energy efficiency projects is rather low, generated cash flows as the main source of the value of energy efficiency projects are not recognized as a relevant source of repayment. The Financial Guidelines provide financial quality criteria (FQCs) that help financial institutions to assess the bankability of EE projects and at the same time support clients and ESCOs to provide sufficient documentation of their projects. The aim of the public discussion workshop is to inform and involve stakeholders and to refine the guidelines.
