New handbook on citizen finance out!

Step-by-step guidelines on energy cooperatives and crowdfunding

Over the three past years, almost 200 local or regional authorities from he EU, including many Energy Cities members, took part in the H2020 PROSPECT’s peer-to-peer learning activities and could thus develop their knowledge and skills on innovative financing for their local sustainable energy and climate projects.

Following an initial series of handbooks on the five sectoral learning modules covered by the project (public building, private buidings, public lighting, transport and cross-sectoral), PROSPECT is now issuing a new publication dedicated to citizen finance. Designed as a step-by-step guidelines, it focuses on the two more widespread citizens financing schemes that are crowdfunding and cooperative models, and presents local good practices in the field in Belgium, Croatia, UK and the Netherlands.

PROSPECT will come to its end in a few months and has still many of its outcomes to share with you. Energy Cities and project partners are also programming new meetings and webinars, that will occur until the end of October, most probably online and hopefully also in real life. We will communicate about it in the project newsletter, to which you can subscribe here.
