Description
A Hungarian authority specialised in financing energy efficiency projects is looking for partners for H2020 EE23 – 2017- “Innovative financing schemes” call. Title of the proposed project: “Spreading the use of innovative financing schemes in Central and Eastern Europe to finance energy efficiency” The overall objective of the project is the replication of European practices on professional risk assessment based on technical and financial due diligence. Furthermore, the project aims to develop a knowledge-base, and a sustainable training framework for all interested professions (engineers, economists, lawyers) and market players in order to be able to evaluate the projects together, regarding all aspects and criteria. The project pursues the following specific objectives: - to develop, document and establish practices for evaluating and mitigating the technical risks associated with investments in ESCO/EPC projects; - to develop, document and establish practices for valuing such risks when modelling the costs of an ESCO/EPC investments as investors do when evaluating the life cycle costs of such projects; - to evaluate how these evaluating and the expected return on investment in different business models vary; - to enable the key actors, and particularly the financial market actors, to widely adopt the project results as best practices for the mitigation of risks of sustainable energy investments with current and new business models; - to aggregate, systematize the relevant tools, know-how and best practices, and develop, and methodize a teachable knowledge-base; - to develop a web-based database, and interactive toolkit for professional and market stakeholders which is capable of drafting indicative offers based upon the data provided by the ESCO project host; - evaluation of best practices in the member states as far as the legislative background of implementing ESCO and EPC projects is concerned. The members of the Consortium: The consortium already involves a Hungarian authority specialised in financing energy efficiency projects in Hungary, a professional chamber, a leading European energy trading company, a Hungarian financing organisation, a state owned company specialised in the coordination of direct funds in the Carpathians, a Swiss company specialized in sustainable energy investments. The following partners are looked for: • public authorities with relevant pragmatic experience in the field; • financial institutions with relevant experience in the field; • research organizations specialized in the design of innovative financing schemes and providing innovative financing services in the energy sector; The participation of entities experienced in H2020 projects on similar topics is very much appreciated. Submission Deadline: 07 June 2017 Deadline to react: 28 April 2017
