The goal of the SEFIPA - Sustainable Energy Financing Platform in Austria - is to develop innovative solutions (financing products, regulatory measures and information campaigns) and to implement them in the form of projects in order to encourage investment in sustainable energy in Austria.


The SEFIPA project comprises 3 components:

  • The Finance Lab involves stakeholders from the areas of finance, sponsorship, administration and project development and develops not only financing products but also works on legal frameworks to trigger further investment in sustainable energy.
  • At the same time structured identification of potential projects/ initiatives that could be financed by the solutions developed by the Finance Lab takes place.
  • Implementation of an investment platform for renewable energy and energy efficiency in Austria.


The outcome of SEFIPA should be the realisation of concrete project initiatives via the newly developed financial instruments as well as suggestions and recommendations for legislative changes that facilitate investment in sustainable energy.
