The WP focuses on creating and implementing a transnational strategy and dedicated financing roadmaps necessary to achieve EE goals, local market development and increase stakeholder engagement. New financial approaches are explored and developed with regards to public institutions which will move EE practices into the mainstream and daily practice. High initial costs, relatively long payback periods, credit risks and more efficient EE investments are the challenges that need to be addressed by different (or even combined) flexible financial tools such as grants, preferential or commercial loans, guarantees, bonds, tax incentives, EPC, etc. Moreover, technical considerations like different building sizes, locations and uses or diverse upgrade and retrofit needs, should be taken into account when planning and applying a long-term action. The WP will thus deliver a transnational strategy for EE financing in CE which will define, structure and review the existing energy financing solutions and models that are or will be in the future the important enablers for EE and energy savings in public infrastructures.
The partnership is happy to share the following results:
|Analysis & elaboration of differences among financial schema in partner countries: EU grants/funds, possible normative obstacles, investment return, models, etc. The document also highlights market-enabling actions for large investments.
|D.T4.1.1.: Comparative analysis of financial schema
|A transnational strategic document which defines, structures and reviews the existing energy financing solutions and models that are or will be in the future the important enablers for EE and energy savings in public infrastructures. The strategy assesses the potential of different financial models and gives recommendations, also based on BOOSTEE-CE pilot action outcomes.
|D.T4.1.2.: Transnational EE financing strategy
|Transnational Energy Efficiency Financing Strategy visualization on the Online Energy Platform - OnePlace is a visual presentation of the transnational strategy outcomes in the module Financing Energy Efficiency of the Online Energy Platform (WPT2).
|D.T4.1.3.: Strategy visualization on the Online Energy Platform - OnePlace
|This document is the report with past and ongoing practices about financial strategies and solutions related to EE in partners´ regions. It assists the realisation of D.T4.1.1-Comparative analysis of financial schema (to understand which features will be implemented in the strategy) as well as to smooth definition and elaboration of D.T4.1.2-Transnational EE financing strategy.
|D.T4.1.4: State-of-the art and best practices of financial strategies and schema
|Roadmaps showing a way to finance EE actions within a desirable timeframe, identifying subsequent steps and appropriate financial solutions. These roadmaps were developed for public infrastructures on a specific territory of the Central Europe and in close cooperation with relevant local authorities and other stakeholders. It was adopted by these authorities for daily procedures & activities
|O.T4.2.: EE financing roadmaps for
|Italy - Emilia-Romagna Region
|Czech Republic - Zlín Region
|Slovenia - Municipality of Velenje
|Poland - City Municipality of Plonsk
|Austria - Municipality of Judenburg
|Hungary - Tolna County
|Poland - Municipality of Lubawka
|Croatia - City of Koprivnica
|Common transnational template of energy efficiency financing roadmaps with guidelines for their specific contents and structure. The aim of the financial roadmap is to help public authorities to deal with many different financing grants in the EE domain. The methodological framework builds upon the practical knowledge of public institutions (project partners and potential stakeholders) and provides an overview of financing models used to finance EE upgrades in the public sector
|D.T4.2.1: Transnational methodological framework for a roadmap development
|Financing roadmaps designed to achieve a desired goal of energy efficiency in public infrastructures in specific towns/ municipalities in IT, AU, CZ, HU, SI, PL, HR partner countries.
|D.T4.2.2: EE financing roadmaps for public infrastructures in CE city/municipality
|Documents from 7 towns/municipalities confirming that EE financing roadmaps will be adopted by relevant public authorities as separate policy documents or parts of other policy documents.
|D.T4.2.3: Signed documents confirming the adoption of the roadmaps
|An overview of all prepared roadmaps along with recommendations for essential elements for EE financing roadmaps. Recommendations and needs received from key target groups will be included.
|D.T4.2.4: Transnational report on development process and outcomes of roadmaps

|This is a simple web based energy efficiency project calculator which gives to the user a basic indicative idea of profitability and advisability of the investment into an energy efficiency or RES project. It counts just with own sources, not considering for instance grants and subsidies on one side or loans on the other side which both can significantly change foreseen values.
