Financial instruments for local energy projects - Outcomes of a Covenant of Mayors training session
Financial instruments for local energy projects - Outcomes of a Covenant of Mayors training session
27 January 2017 - 16:46

At the end of 2016, the Covenant of Mayors Office organised a two-day workshop on energy project financing. The training was designed to foster dialogue and learning opportunities amongst the ten participating cities and finance experts.

Through different roundtables, group discussions and presentations, representatives from cities had the opportunity to learn how to use the experts’ theoretical inputs for their own project idea by taking into consideration their cities' challenges and possibilities.

At the end, participants were invited to exchange on the role that initiatives like the Covenant of Mayors can play to help cities improve their access to finance resources through European funds and financing programmes.
