EuroPACE 2.4 - Feasibility study for a financial instrument and a review of existing retrofit loan schemes

“EuroPACE” is a project funded by the European Commission which seeks to boost energy efficiency investments for buildings in Europe. The project has been developed by a number of NGOs and organisations known as the EuroPACE Consortium. As a member of the EuroPACE Consortium, the Climate Bonds Initiative has worked on a series of deliverables designed to support the uptake of the programme.

Task 2.4 provides an analysis of the cost effectiveness of different energy efficiency lending programmes across Europe. This report, highlights findings from different programmes in Belgium, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Portugal and Spain. By assessing the rates of interest, ambition of retrofit programmes, and level of uptake, we are able to provide recommendations for the Europace programme.
