  3. 3. Financing Energy Efficiency ESIF EEE F IEE DOMESTIC HORIZON 2 ELENA MLEI  ESIF: European Fund for regional development  EEE F European Energy Efficiency Fund  IEE: Intelligent Energy Europe  ELENA / MLEI: Mobilizing Local Energy Investments  DOMESTIC: National Budget  Horizon: R&D framework 8
  4. 4. European Energy Efficiency Fund (EEE F) The Fund was launched on 1st July 2011 with a global volume of EUR 265 million, providing tailor-made debt and equity instruments to local, regional and (if justified) national public authorities or public or private entities acting on their behalf. EEE F aims at financing bankable projects in energy efficiency (70%), renewable energy (20%) and clean urban transport (10%) through innovative instruments and in particular promoting the application of the EPC. A technical assistance grant support (EUR 20 million) is available for project development services (technical, financial) linked to the investments financed by the Fund. 3
  5. 5. The Intelligent Energy – Europe Programme II (IEE II)  The Intelligent Energy – Europe Programme II (IEE II) focuses on removal of non-technological barriers to energy efficiency and renewable energy market uptake26. Under the 20072013 programming period, EUR 730 million is available. The IEE helps creating favourable market conditions, shaping policy development and implementation, preparing the ground for investments, building capacity and skills, informing stakeholders and fostering commitment. This also includes projects on financing energy efficiency in public buildings. 4
  6. 6. ELENA Facility  Launched in 2009 under IEE II, this initiative provides technical assistance grants (of up to 90% of eligible costs) to local and regional authorities for development and launch of sustainable energy investments over their territories. The EU support is conditional to investments induced with a minimum leverage of 1:20. It consists of 4 operational windows with the EIB, KfW, CEB and EBRD. So far, some EUR 31 million assigned to 17 projects should trigger investments nearing EUR 1.6 billion, within the 3year duration of ELENA contracts. About a third of these investments addresses the buildings sector and EPC and a third is allocated to urban transport projects. ELENA Facility enables the financing of investments both by private and public sources and facilitates connection with financial instruments (such as Jessica). 5
  7. 7. Mobilising Local Energy Investments (MLEI)  MLEI is also a Project development assistance addressing projects between EUR 6 million and EUR 50 million, run through annual call for proposals managed by the Executive Agency for Competitiveness and Innovation (EACI). 6
  8. 8. Cohesion policy  Under the current financing period (2007-2013), EU Cohesion policy funding has increasingly focused on investments in energy efficiency and renewables, in line with the Europe 2020 Strategy for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth and the 20% energy efficiency target. 7
  9. 9. Horizon on energy efficiency MAIN TOPICS Finance for sustainable energy Industry and products 8 Buildings and consumers Heating and cooling Horizon 2020 is the European Union’s new research programme, which will succeed FP7 in 2014. Horizon 2020 is the financial instrument implementing the Innovation Union, a Europe 2020 flagship initiative aimed at securing Europe's global competitiveness. Running from 2014 to 2020 with an €80 billion budget, the EU’s new programme for research and innovation is part of the drive to create new growth and jobs in Europe. Horizon 2020 will tackle societal challenges by helping to bridge the gap between research and the market by, for example, helping innovative enterprise to develop their technological breakthroughs into viable products with real commercial potential. This market-driven approach will include creating partnerships with the private sector and Member States to bring together the resources needed. Horizon 2020 will be complemented by further measures to complete and further develop the European Research Area by 2014. These measures will aim at breaking down barriers to create a genuine single market for knowledge, research and innovation.
