This project looks to design financing schemes for refurbishments which are tailored to each country's needs and which involve both new technologies and new building materials. It is exploring potential links between cross-border initiatives and international finance institutions, helping put together grants, loans, third party financing, and investment funds with the aim of stimulating energy efficiency and use of renewable energy sources. Showcase projects are helping develop local and regional expertise.
