Business, Energy, environment and climate,
Established in 2013 by DG Energy and the United Nations Environment Program Finance Initiative (UNEP FI), the Energy efficiency financial institutions group (EEFIG) is an open dialogue and work platform for public and private financial institutions, industry representatives and sector experts to identify the barriers to the long-term financing for energy efficiency, to propose policy and market solutions.
The Commission estimates that in order to achieve the proposed 55% climate target by 2030, around € 275 billion of additional investments are needed per year. In this context, EEFIG will play a key role in the activation of private-sector financing by identifying best practices and innovative approaches and helping them scale-up.
With a combination of keynote speeches and high-level panel discussants on current issues in energy efficiency finance, the EEFIG plenary meeting 2021 will be the occasion for participants to discuss the good results of the different work streams in 2020 and draw up possible pathways for EEFIG in 2021 and towards the 2030 target.
