Securing funds for renovating hospitals, schools and other large public buildings to reduce their energy consumption is not easy for public authorities in the Mediterranean area. Indeed, public bodies cannot afford the high costs of deep renovation so they need to attract private investors. However, the poor financial prospects of such projects - long payback time and low internal rates of return (IRR) – makes the investment unappealing for the private sector.
