Funding and Financing Schemes

One target of the GREENFOODS project was the development of an ideal funding programme for energy-efficiency and/or measures for the supply of energy based on renewable sources.

As a first step all GREENFOODS partners conducted a detailed mapping of existing funding programmes and financing instruments in their country in 2013. More than 78 different funding and financing schemes (incl. the contact data)  from Poland, Germany, Austria, UK, France and Spain are now available in the Report on Mapping of Funding/Financing Opportunities.

Based on an analysis of this information, recommendations for funding programmes were developed, in order to facilitate the implementation of identified energy efficiency potentials and renewable energy sources in SMEs.To make them as relevant for businesses as possible, we invited persons working in the food & drinks sector, as well as other experts such as energy and funding consultants, technology providers or financial institutions to participate in an online survey.

The conclusions are a diverse approach for small and bigger projects, that has been presented to public authorities in the partner countries. More information can be downloaded here.
