What are the problems in energy efficiency financing markets? It seems like it is still difficult to unlock finance, but certainly, a lot of barriers have disappeared. The Investor Confidence Project (ICP) or the EU-PACE project, are the proof of it. The transition goes from the mindset of thinking that the core problem was the lack of finance, to the need of understanding financing as an ecosystem where tasks and stakeholders should align horizontally to deliver standardized and bankable projects, bringing implementation, non-energy benefits and returns.
