"This report examines the quality of firms' building stock, their spending on energy efficiency measures and the factors that influence their decisions regarding that investment. It highlights that both high-quality information and advanced management practices make a crucial difference in the likelihood of investment in energy efficiency. The regulatory framework needs to be supportive, yet also push for higher energy building performance standards, while financing conditions should facilitate timely investment by firms to realize the enormous gains that can be achieved through energy efficiency improvements."

With it, the Lithuanian financing situation has seen an evolution from using financial intermediaries as agents to disburse ERDF and national funds, to an ERDF-backed guarantee to banks, who will use only their own funds to give out modernization loans.

Global Urbis is a ground-breaking partnership to enhance climate action in cities around the world. The Land Degradation Neutrality Fund finances climate adaptation and land restoration measures through projects that will benefit some of the most vulnerable communities.
The EIB is partnering with the ISA to support the expansion of solar energy in India and other regions where solar power is one of the most abundant renewable energy sources but where technologies, funding and expertise are often lacking.
The ISA aims to raise $1 trillion by 2030 from public and private investors to invest in such solar projects. In 2017, the EIB provided €1.05 billion of new financing for solar energy projects around the world, and is currently finalizing a new €200 million credit line for renewable energy projects across India. Over the last five years, the EU Bank provided more than €21 billion for renewable energy investment worldwide, including €2.5 billion in photovoltaic and concentrated solar power projects.
The South Africa-based URBIS initiative comprises a global alliance of partners aspiring to reconcile urban development with the conservation of biodiversity and the sustainable use of natural resources; a quest to engender cities with greater social-ecological resilience in the context of global environmental change. The initiative aligns with broader international efforts to implement the ecosystem approach and build inclusive green urban economies.

The aim of the Global Climate City Challenge is to strengthen urban climate action projects in regions most likely to be affected by a changing climate, and those that are not necessarily able to fund the necessary resilience themselves, such as those throughout Africa, Asia, and Latin America. Projects will be bolstered using best-practice and technical assistance intended to offset the risks and impact of climate change, enhance the impact of these projects, and improve the financial sustainability of first-time projects. The City Challenge will look to transform financing for low-carbon and climate resilient infrastructure by mobilizing significant levels of private investment, as well as increasing support from public resources.
The City Challenge will also benefit from the involvement of FELICITY, a technical assistance program for low-carbon infrastructure projects in cities which is jointly led with the German Corporation for International Cooperation (GIZ), and which the German Federal Ministry of the Environment (BMU) expects to expand in the near-future.
The Global Climate City Challenge will look to support climate action projects in six cities in the coming weeks under an initial pilot program which will include efforts to enhance the bankability of projects as well as increasing financing support, sharing experience of smart-city technology, and innovative urban financing.

Green Bond pledge adherents agree that climate change poses an existential threat and that the rapid growth of a green bonds market will not only meet the unique challenges the world faces, but will do so while making communities more economically competitive, prosperous, and productive.
Green bonds may be sold by governments, as well as by private entities, to finance projects that have positive environmental or climate attributes. The projects can range from clean transportation to renewable energy.
The green bond market started in 2007 with bonds issued by the World Bank and the European Investment Bank. By 2017, both California and New York had issued more than $4 billion in bonds to finance such things as clean water projects, green schools, mass transit, land preservation, and green housing. The state is now looking to build on that start and help grow a much more robust market for green bond financing.

The new Guide follows the Eurostat Guidance note on the revised treatment of Energy Performance Contracts in government accounts, issued in September 2017, and explains its practical application, making use of technical assistance resources from the European Investment Advisory Hub (EIAH).
The Guide explains in detail how Energy Performance Contracts work and gives a clear overview of the potential impact on government finances. This will help Member States and other stakeholders to better understand the impact that the different features of these contracts have on the classification of the investment undertaken, on or off government balance sheet.
A major priority is energy efficiency as a part of a low-carbon economy. Here, so-called Energy Performance Contracts, or EPCs for short, can help mobilise private investment and expertise in energy efficiency in public sector buildings. Energy Performance in buildings is part of the legislative package "Clean Energy for all Europeans" -- a key element for achieving a resilient Energy Union and a forward-looking climate change policy.
