Training on innovative financing schemes: INFINITE Solutions project

Share this Post:

Although many cities and regions have engaged in an energy transition, fincancing sustainable energy measures remains a great challenge.  Project investment costs are high and it seems difficult to cover them using the municipal budget and traditional financing methods only. Local and regional authorities have to be resourceful and open-minded to invent and test new financing mechanisms, business models, organisational structures and partnerships to make their sustainable energy projects happen.  This requires strong technical, financial, legal and coordination skills and expertise in local authorities.


Training objectives: to inform and train participants on how to develop and implement three innovative financing schemesthat have been tested by 11 European cities and regions.


Target groups

  • Organisations who have a strong potential to replicate these financing schemes and/or to promote them towards local and regional authorities
  • Representatives of national public authorities and energy agencies
  • European and national associations of local authorities
  • Representatives of managing authorities of the European Structural and Investment Funds (ESIF)
  • Local and regional authorities and their energy agencies
  • Financing institutions.
