Date: Thursday, 3rd September
The City Finance Lab (CFL) is the first platform in Europe to support the development of innovative, replicable and scalable financing solutions dedicated to increasing investment in climate-resilient, low-carbon and green urban projects for sustainable cities.
To achieve its mission, the CFL holds an annual call for proposals inviting relevant city stakeholders to submit their promising solutions. Selected proponents receive in-kind technical advisory support from city finance experts at leading public, private and philanthropic organisations. They will also have the opportunity to showcase their plans to potential partners and investors in order to scale-up their solutions.
Previously selected initiatives include an Energy Performance Contracting (EPC) scheme – a method of financing energy efficiency improvements and renewable projects that lack the funds to do so – for deep retrofitting of buildings in Poland, a reward card for citizens who invest in solar energy measures in Aradippou, Cyprus and the set up of a Green Participatory Budget in Lisbon, Portugal. Find out more about all the CFL-supported initiatives here.
Join us on 3 September @3-4 CET to find out more about how to apply and to hear from selected proponents’ experience.
