The Covenant of Mayors and the Citynvest project will organise an event for local authorities on how to implement successful financial schemes for buildings renovation.

Boosting investment for sustainable building renovation is vital for achieving a clean energy transition in Europe. This is particularly true as buildings are responsible for 40% of European primary energy consumption and 36% of CO2 emissions.

The problem is: there is no easy way for cities to access financing, including from the EU.

The conference will sum up all cities need to know on innovative financing models for energy efficiency building renovations. Through interactive round-tables, cities will have the opportunity to learn from experts and exchange best practices with peers.

A policy talk will give the chance to be engaged in a constructive dialogue with key policy & decision makers on how to support buildings renovation.
