Registration Open: First Financing Innovative Clean Tech virtual conference

First Financing Innovative Clean Tech virtual conference

On the 25 September 2020, financiers and industry representatives will gather virtually to discuss how public and private investors can join forces to deliver the European Green Deal.

Policy context

Unlocking investments in clean technologies is at the heart of the European Green Deal and is a pivotal element in Europe’s strategy to repair economic damage from the COVID-19 crisis. The Innovation Fund with its around €10 billion of support over 2020-2030 is one of the world’s largest funding programmes for the demonstration of innovative low-carbon technologies. That makes it a key tool for Europe to become the first climate-neutral bloc in the world by 2050. But it cannot deliver this endeavour alone and will need to leverage public and private sources of funding to deliver the technological revolution that Europe needs.

Conference objectives

By 2025 the first projects awarded funding under the Innovation Fund will need to reach financial close. This 1st Financing Innovative Clean Tech virtual conference will provide insight into how to reach this crucial step of project development.

Financiers coming from different market segments and industry will share their views on:

  • What makes an innovative clean tech project attractive for financiers?
  • How to balance profitability and innovativeness?
  • How to structure the financing of innovative clean tech projects?
  • What added value can the Innovation Fund bring to investors and project promoters?

During the following days, the participants will have the opportunity to organise 1to1 meetings via the Virtual Matchmaking tool.
