CitizEE webinar: How Regional Agencies Can Use Crowdfunding For Energy Efficiency – 18 Feb 2022

by EUROCROWD on 20.01.2022

Once again EUROCROWD teams up with the CitizEE in organising a capacity-building webinar for public authorities and interested parties on showcasing how crowdfunding can help create local citizen finance schemes.

In this webinar, we will share how public authorities proactively can involve citizens in public funding decisions and co-investing. Velimir Šegon, Deputy Managing Director at REGEA, the North-West Croatia Regional Energy Agency will share details of their involvement in Citizens Finance Schemes:

Date: 18 February 2020

Time: 10.00-10.30 CET

Discussant: Velimir Šegon, Deputy Managing Director at REGEA - North-West Croatia Regional Energy Agency

Moderation: Oliver Gajda, Executive Director, EUROCROWD

Registrations:  Zoom

Some 40% of total EU energy consumption is used by the building sector and 36% of the total EU greenhouse gas emissions come from buildings. Based on best practices this webinar will provide insights into investment opportunities for citizens through crowdfunding platforms, allowing for more effective use of public funding with citizens' support.

The webinar is organised in the framework of EC co-funded CitizEE, which aims at developing, testing and evaluating citizen financing schemes for energy efficiency. Citizen financing mechanisms, such as crowdfunding or cooperative funding will be matched with public financing instruments. Both can be combined with Citizen Investment Platforms backed by the European Fund for Strategic Investments (EFSI).
