During the two consecutive workshops objectives, achievements and challenges of EU and IFI supported Energy Efficiency investments were presented and discussed. The workshops were attended by a total of approximately 100 participants from ministries, government agencies, energy companies, ESCOs, industry associations, municipalities, universities, consultancy companies, EU Commission and JASPERS/EIB.
The first workshop (on October 1) focused on achievements, challenges and potential technical and financial assistance in promoting energy efficiency in SMEs and large industry, while the second one (on October 2) focused on energy efficiency for housing and public buildings.
During the workshops, DG REGIO and DG ENERGY provided information on policy context and available EU funding (ESIF and other sources) for the 2021-27 financial perspective, where grant funding volumes are expected to decrease but still remain at a high absolute level, due the crucial contribution of energy efficiency measures in achieving Climate Action objectives.
JASPERS presented the support it makes available to counterparts in the preparation of EE projects (both Major and not) as well as through horizontal guidance and capacity building. In close coordination with DG COMP, JASPERS also provided detailed information on the applicable State aid regime and the way state aid matters related to EU support for private undertakings and households can be addressed.
Participants to the workshop and representatives from EC services stressed the importance of JASPERS providing support also related to individual programs and projects below the major project threshold.
