Overcoming Barriers to Investing in Energy Efficiency (Webinar) - 04.12.2018
The presenters provide their views on the ways to improve the investment climate for energy efficiency and to find policy solutions and incentive schemes to make energy efficiency projects viable. They talk of the role of private sector and financial institutions in implementing energy efficiency measures and projects and what governments can do to facilitate this. The basis for this conversation is the joint UNECE/Copenhagen Centre on Energy Efficiency publication Overcoming Barriers to Investing in Energy Efficiency, which looks into barriers to investing in energy efficiency and ways to overcome them. The publication brings to light insights on the challenges and solutions for overcoming these barriers provided by practitioners working in the field. A sectoral perspective looks in more detail into investment decisions in the industry sector, in particular, what helps viable projects to be identified and implemented and what stimulates companies to make decisions to finance and implement energy efficiency measures and projects.
