Established in 2013 by DG Energy and UNEP FI, the Energy Efficiency Financial Institutions Group (EEFIG) is an open dialogue and work platform for public and private financial institutions, industry representatives and sector experts to identify the barriers to the long-term financing for energy efficiency, to propose policy and market solutions. The group has engaged more than 120 active members from about 100 organisations throughout the EU.
With a combination of keynote speeches and high-level panel discussants on current issues in energy efficiency finance, the EEFIG Plenary meeting 2021 will be the occasion for participants to discuss the good results of the different workstreams in 2020 and draw up possible pathways for EEFIG in 2021 and towards the 2030 target.
Day one on February 9th is free and open to the public. It will include opening speeches by Eric Usher, Head of UNEP FI and Claudia Canevari, Head of Unit of the Directorate-General for Energy, together with a keynote speech by Ditte Juul Jørgensen, Director-General for Energy at the EU-Commission, as well as high profile speakers from the EIB, EBRD, CITI, AXA, KfW, ING and European Mortgage Federation, among many others.
