Driving New Finance for Energy Efficiency Investments

12.05.15

This report summarises the main conclusions and recommendations from the Energy Efficiency Financial Institutions Group (EEFIG) that are of relevance to institutional investors such as asset owners, asset managers and the investment arms of insurance companies. The EEFIG was established in 2013 as a specialist expert working group by the European Commission and the United Nations Environment Programme Finance Initiative (UNEP-FI). Its aim was to determine how the challenges involved in obtaining long-term financing for the energy efficiency in the building, industry and SME sectors might be overcome.

This report provides examples of the actions that institutional investors have taken to encourage policy and business action on energy efficiency and suggests six areas where they should focus their efforts:

1. Awareness

2. Data and Evidence

3. Standards

4. Engagement

5. Public Policy

6. Financial Instruments
