GLOBE EU, in association with GLOBE International and the climate change think tank E3G, invites you to participate in the forthcoming event “Boosting the clean energy infrastructure pipeline 2020-2030 – the role of National Capital Raising Plans”.

Update: Our webinar follow up will take place Next Thursday 6th October at 10am BST (11am Europe) and last 45 minutes.

Do read our event report blog Clean energy infrastructure: Raising the capital ahead of time – or see the presentations from the event at the top of this page.

National Energy and Climate Plans represent an important opportunity to generate investor confidence in Member States’ plans to develop and finance energy infrastructure. While around €200bn per year needs to be mobilised between 2020 and 2030 to meet the EU’s climate and energy targets, its clean energy investments amounted to just €34.3bn in 2015.

The event aims to set out how a strategic approach to financing – through developing National Capital Raising Plans – can help Member States meet both their energy infrastructure needs and climate and energy targets.

Similar financing strategies are currently under development in Chile and Mexico where inovative lessons can be drawn for the EU context to boost investments in clean energy infrastructure in Member States.
