Funding Opportunity: European City Facility Fund open until 02/10/20

Municipalities and local authorities are the driver of sustainable energy transition. With tremendous potential to build comprehensive sustainable energy investment programmes, they also play a key role in pooling smaller projects into larger investment portfolios and in mobilising significant financial resources required for the energy transition.

The EUCF will unlock this local potential and support local authorities and their groupings with tailor-made, fast and simplified financial support (in the form of €60,000 lump sums ) and related services to enable the development of relevant investment concepts related to the implementation of actions identified in their climate and energy action plans.

Successful applicants to the EUCF will use the lump sum to develop their investment concepts, which represents an initial step towards a fully-fledged business and financial plan. The ultimate objective is to build a substantial pipeline of sustainable energy investment projects across municipalities in Europe.

Full details of how to apply are online. The deadline for applications is 02 October 2020.
