Event description



The European Energy Efficiency Fund (EEEF) technical assistance managed by the Deutsche Bank, the ELENA-EIB managed by the European Investment Bank and the Project Development Assistance managed by the EASME are three main technical assistance facilities helping public authorities to bridge the gap between their Sustainable Energy and Climate Action Plans and actual investments in sustainable energy projects.

The technical assistance (TA) facilities usually cover the costs of feasibility and market studies, programme structuring, business plans, energy audits and financial structuring, as well as to the preparation of tendering procedures, contractual arrangements and project implementation units. TA proved to be crucial for a number of cities and regions that succeeded in launching important investment programmes in energy efficiency and renewable energy.

Being available to public authorities since the year 2010, the European Commission, managing banks as well as beneficiaries have been gaining experience with the TA implementation.


  • Share the lessons learnt from the previous EEEF TA and present the new edition of the facility launched in March 2017
  • Compare the EEEF TA with other existing facilities and provide advice to future beneficiaries who consider applying for one of the TAs and launching their own investment programmes.


  • Ms Zarpana Signor, Investment Advisor at the EEEF

Zarpana will present the new EEEF TA facility: building on the lessons learnt from the past, in March 2017, Deutche Bank launched a new edition of the EEEF TA. The conditions have changed and the call for projects is constantly open to public authorities. The first beneficiary is the city of Gijón in Spain which will carry out energy audits for 98 public buildings and 40,000 street lighting points, leading to an expected investment of 20 M EUR.

  • Ms Erika Honnay, Project Director at GRE Liège (Development agency for the Liege area, Belgium)

Erika will share her experience with the development of project proposals for the three above mentioned TA facilities. She can compare the conditions and give recommendations to future beneficiaries who hesitate in which programme to get involved.

  • Participants

Discussion and Q&A session. Existing and future TA beneficiaries are warmly welcome to join the discussion.
