EENVEST: Risk reduction for Building Energy Efficiency investments in Europe

What is EEnvest?

EEnvest is a H2020 collaborative research project focused on mainstreaming energy efficiency financing in the european building renovation sector. 

The aim of EEnvest is the creation of a tool (a web-based search and match platform) which investors can use to evaluate the risk of investment in energy efficiency for buildings. The web-based search platform will match the demand and offer of buildings to be retrofitted with funding available from external financiers.

The EEnvest platform will provide reliable information on the risk associated with energy renovation measures, combining proprietary risk evaluation models with the specific features of the property evaluated. The platform will use a blockchain-based data exchange validation system in order to guarantee the security and quality of the information. In this way, EEnvest will connect technical and financial communities, such as building owners, designers and potential transaction financers, as well as private investors.

To carry out the risk evaluation, the EEnvest platform will use a framework developed within the project that will combine technical-financial due-diligence mechanisms, resulting in a set of possible renovation actions presented in an organized and user-friendly way.

The Consortium of EEnvest:

The EEnvest Consortium represents a multi-disciplinary group composed of 9 partners representing 5 EU countries, including research institutions, consulting companies, technical developers and organizations involved with the civil society, which stands for an ideal platform to carry out the work proposed.

Ecrowd! as a partner of EEnvest:

Ecrowd! is very interested in the project since doing due diligence on energy efficiency projects is an important part of analyzing a project’s viability and decision to publish. By streamlining energy efficiency, more projects will probably be eligible for financing, due diligence will be faster and easier and projects will flow faster through the whole process. Ecrowd!’s task in the project is to bring practical experience in project due diligence and financing of energy efficiency projects.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement n° 833112
