EFFECT4buildings Newsletter #3 Case Stories

Case Stories

​Since the beginning of the EFFECT4buildings, the project team has been actively working with municipalities and public building managers to develop and test different financial tools and methods to unlock the investments and lower the risks of implementing energy efficiency measures in public buildings.

EFFECT4buildings project team in regions invited public building managers to become case owners for different tools and instruments. Some of these cases are real cases for implementing energy efficiency measures, becoming both development cases and testing cases.

Stories of the cases in different regions will be the main focus for #3 EFFECT4buildings International Newsletter. We hope the stories will inspire you to find the right financing tool/instrument for your building.
