European Energy Efficiency Fund to re-open technical assistance programme
22 November 2016 - 17:36

Following the European Commission’s technical assistance facility managed by the European Energy Efficiency Fund (EEEF), the Fund has now set up a new assistance scheme to support ambitious public beneficiaries in developing bankable sustainable energy investment programmes.

These projects shall relate to the energy efficiency sector, small-scale renewable energy and/or urban public transport. The technical assistance facility aims to bridge the gap between sustainable energy plans and real investments through supporting all activities necessary to prepare investments into sustainable energy projects.

Eligible applicants: regions, city councils, universities, public hospitals and other public entities located in the Member States of the European Union

Sectors covered: energy efficiency, small-scale renewable energy and/or public urban transport

Activities supported: feasibility studies, energy audits, evaluation of the economic viability of the investments and legal support

Support format: EEEF is supporting beneficiaries by allocating consultant services to the planned investment programmes (for example for feasibility studies, energy audits and evaluating the economic viability of investments). It also covers direct staff costs of the beneficiaries and external legal service costs required.  Should the investment programme not be funded under EEEF, the reimbursement of services previously paid by EEEF is required.

Project investment volume: €5m - €25m

Leverage factor for Technical Assistance: >20

Submission deadline: date for submission of the application is Friday 23 December 2016, 17:00 (CET).
