Financial Instruments Speed-dating: Meet ELENA, MLEI, JESSICA and EEEFCharlemagne building
Public authorities (local, regional and national), energy agencies, ESCOs, project promoters.
This networking event was held within the framework of the 2012 EU Sustainable Energy Week on 20 June, in Brussels. With an interactive and customised approach, the event focused on investment and financing mechanisms for supporting local and regional energy actions.
The event’s aim was to provide direct and customised access to information on technical assistance grant facilities and investment vehicles
The event was structured in a ‘speed-dating’ format. Participants had the opportunity to meet in person with experts representing five financial institutions and financing instruments: the European Investment Bank (EIB), the Council of Europe Bank (CEB), the Mobilising Local Energy Investments (MLEI) funding initiative, the European Energy Efficiency Fund (EEEF) and KfW. Instead of delivering presentations or speeches, the experts met directly with participants to discuss their investment plans and project ideas. The event was highly interactive and required the participants’ active involvement. The following six experts provided their consulting services to participants:
- Zarpana MASSUD-BAQA, European Energy Efficiency Fund
- Ralf GOLDMANN, European Investment Bank
- Joachim VONALT,KfW
- Sebastien RELLAND, Council of Europe Bank
- Adrien BULLIER, Mobilising Local Energy Investments
- Martin EIBL, Mobilising Local Energy Investments
Nearly 50 appointments between participants and experts were held, most booked in advance and some on site. Each appointment’s duration was 20 minutes. Almost 75% of participants represented public authorities and energy agencies, while the remaining 24% came from the private sector or non-profit entities.
