About this Event

During the session, which is part of the peer-to-peer online workshops organized to facilitate the exchange between Urban LEDS cities across regions, participants will learn, discuss and build upon elements like the role of a local energy agency and possible financing strategies to be used for climate change action.

In separate rooms, attendees will have the opportunity to discuss together the possible implementation of concrete cases. In the second interactive part in fact, participants will 1) analyse the different combinations of the key elements to be considered when outlining a strategy to finance energy projects and 2)engage in the set-up of a local energy agency or a similar structure, according to what is more suitable to their context.

During the session, several concrete examples of different strategies with a long track record of successful cases will be presented. These will cover a variety of approaches to the two topics, from strictly internal mechanisms to more widespread schemes with private stakeholders: either through innovative financing mechanisms, synergetic approaches to financing or grassroots propelled projects with direct community participation. From this array of solutions, participants will then be able to draft a strategy that fits their local context.
