HORIZON 2020 PROJECT: SEIFA “Sustainable Energy Investing and Financing Activation”
Building a low carbon, climate resilient future: secure, clean and efficient energy
The SEIFA project is focusing on investing and financing of deep renovation industrial projects, energy supply facilities and energy service companies of industrial parks and clusters in the Central and Eastern Europe (CEE region). The target locations for sustainable energy investments are 12 EU and NATO member countries in Central and Eastern Europe including Bulgaria, Croatia, Czechia, Estonia, Germany, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, and Slovenia.
Sustainability and the transition to a low-carbon, more resource-efficient and circular economy are key in ensuring the long-term competitiveness of the EU economy.
The Horizon 2020 project of the Sustainable Energy Investing and Financing Activation (SEIFA) will create incentives to increase private equity investing for the industrial decarbonisation of the built environment. In the next 30 months, 10 project partners from CEE region will be focusing on establishing the new financial schemes, network of regional/national project aggregators, the financial software tools for the energy efficiency measurements, qualification, and evaluation of additional benefits of sustainable energy investing, the detailed methodology of the sustainable energy investments securitisation and detailed roadmap for the secondary market for sustainable energy investing.
At least 500 million € for sustainable energy projects will be provided during the SEIFA project duration and it is expected that the 5 billion € mark will be reached during the 5 years after the project completion. The SEIFA project platform will greatly increase the attractiveness for the financial sector to sustainable energy investing across Europe and beyond.
