Roundtable on Finance for Energy Efficiency in Czech Republic
On 5 October 2017 a national roundtable on energy efficiency finance in the Czech Republic took place in Prague. The event was organised by the European Commission, in partnership with the Czech Ministry of Industry and Trade and the UN Environment Finance Initiative. It was a follow up of the public event organised on 27 April 2017 as part of the Sustainable Energy Investment Forums, which support the implementation of the Smart Finance for Smart Buildings initiative in the EU Member States.
The roundtable aimed to start a dialogue on energy efficiency financing between key stakeholders in the Czech Republic, in order to identify common goals and possible improvements in the national political framework. The working sessions focused on residential buildings, public buildings, industry, and the involvement of banks in energy efficiency finance.
