Covenant of Mayors Office
63-67 Rue d’Arlon
Cities often find it challenging to find their way through the complex maze of EU funding streams, programmes and mechanisms. To co-finance the development or implementation of their Sustainable Energy Action Plans (SEAPs), Covenant of Mayors signatories can however consider a wide range of solutions, whether tapping into EU budget or via other means, including alternative financing schemes such as crowd-funding, revolving funds and green bonds.
To provide signatories with a comprehensive overview of the various options available, the Covenant of Mayors Office just released its Quick Reference Guide on “Financing Opportunities for Local Sustainable Energy 2014 – 2020”. Obviously, the list is not exhaustive, and the EU funding environment is set to evolve in the coming months, as the Juncker Commission fine-tunes its work programme, but it should provide some initial food for thought !
