The Energy Efficient Mortgages Initiative
The Energy Efficient Mortgages Initiative is a global, market-led initiative with the aim of mobilising capital markets and implementing ESG best practices in the financial sector in support of the objectives of the EU Green Deal and Renovation Wave Strategy. The Initiative is focused on designing a new, multi-stakeholder ecosystem and macroprudential framework to channel private finance towards investment in energy efficient buildings and energy saving renovations. Rooted in a win-win process for consumers, businesses, banks, investors, regulators and supervisors, the Initiative is developing private and public incentives and building expertise and professional competences across the entire value chain, with a view to scaling up consumer demand, supporting businesses, leveraging on private finance and capital markets and reinforcing financial stability.

Collective Intelligence for Energy Flexibility
The COLLECTiEF project will enhance, implement, test and evaluate an interoperable and scaleable energy management system based on Collective Intelligence (CI) that allows easy and seamless integration of legacy equipment into a collaborative network within and between existing buildings and urban energy systems with reduced installation cost, data transfer and computational power while increasing data security, energy flexibility and climate resilience. This is done through developing software and hardware packages to install and smart up buildings and their legacy equipment on large scale, meanwhile, to maintain simple and robust communication with the energy grid. The provided scalable solutions will integrate seamlessly with existing legacy equipment and will facilitate demand-side management of multiple buildings, enhancing energy flexibility and resilience in urban areas.

Sustainable Energy Investing and Financing Activation
The project of the Sustainable Energy Investing and Financing Activation (SEIFA) will create incentives to increase private equity investing for the industrial decarbonisation of the built environment. The SEIFA project is focusing on investing and financing of deep renovation industrial projects, energy supply facilities and energy service companies. The investors-first approach will be held with an emphasis on the environmental impact in terms of decarbonisation rate and risk-adjusted rate of return.
