Crowdfunding for renewable energy - a great opportunity for Austria?

The Global 2000 expert workshop (which took place on 14.12.2016 at Albert Schweizer Haus in Vienna) was centered around the topic "Crowdfunding for renewable energy - a great opportunity for Austria?" The workshop was part of the project "Crowdfundres", supported by the EU Commission's Horizon 2020 programme. You can find further information about this project under www.crowdfundres.eu.

International experts highlighted the topic of "crowdfunding" firstly from a legal standpoint and also presented best-practice examples of crowdfunding for renewable energy. Katharina Muner-Sammer (OEGUT) and Oliver Percl (Energy Changes) introduced the new crowdfunding platforms crowd4climate and crowd4energy. The new crowd4energy platform is part of the SEFIPA project and will be launched soon. Sustainable energy projects in Austria for this platform are currently are being looked for.
