Are you an investor looking for new opportunities or ideas?
You are on the right track: Green Energy is globally considered a successful investment. In addition, in order to meet the objectives of the Paris Agreement and achieve the SDGs, trillions of euros will be need to be mobilized globally. Europe alone has identified a yearly financial gap of more than EUR 180 billion to finance public policies and investments necessary to keep the global temperature in line with the objectives of the Paris Agreement. It is more that obvious, that without the private sector and investors, the funding gap in sustainable finance cannot be closed. Beside banks (around two thirds of the European economy is financed by the banks), an important role in the transition to a more sustainable future will be played by wide range of investors, capital providers and capital intermediaries.
The market for sustainable energy is expected to grow at a 7.5% compound annual growth rate and surpass €1 trillion over the coming years, driven by:
- the growing world economy,
- EU and COP-21 sustainable energy agendas,
- increased social awareness,
- greater incentives for Renewable Energy Sources,
- greater cost competitiveness over time.
NESOI aims at unlocking the potential of EU islands to become the locomotives of the European Energy Transition.
The inability of islands to translate their general long-term goals into a viable set of plans and project outlines, or investment concepts, that form the foundation for actual initiatives, is one of their biggest obstacles.
In this context, the NEF platform becomes a fundamental tool to facilitate and support the various users in the search for new investment opportunities, or the expansion of a strong network. In addition, the investment concepts would allow a large number of islands and regions to access various innovative financing streams.
