BUILD UP Webinar Recordings | Smart Finance for Smart Building initiative

Thursday 21st September 2017, 15:00 – 16:30 Brussels time (CET)


Smart Finance for Smart Buildings (SFSB) initiative is a non-legislative proposal included by the European Commission in the proposed Clean Energy for All Europeans Package. SFSB aims at unlocking private finance to accelerate the renovation of the EU building stock. The initiative is structured around three pillars: 1) financial de-risking through a more effective use of public funding; 2) technological/technical de-risking through the aggregation of projects and assistance for project development; and 3) behavioural de-risking by providing information to investors to reduce the perceived risks of energy renovation projects.


SFSB is analysed based on existing literature and lessons learnt from the design and the implementation of energy renovation programmes by Member States. The main findings of this analysis are summarised in the OpenExp discussion paper presented/discussed at the webinar.


For more information on the Smart Finance for Smart Building initiative, please see the relevant EC Staff Working Document.
