Is there anyone who has experience with loans for energy efficiency and renewable energies in the residential building sector (commonly called “renovation loan”)?
There seems to be a so-called "off‐the‐shelf" financial instrument being developed by the EC to provide loans to building owners/private owners
(with a particular focus on multi‐apartment residential buildings and social housing) at preferential rates to support EE and
RE measures. These loans seems to aiming at "multi‐ apartment buildings where the energy saving potential of renovation is significant but where apartment owners still
need appropriate incentives, in the form of complementary grant assistance, long‐term subsidised loan conditions and
upfront advisory support. A key objective of the renovation loan is to streamline the delivery of finance to final recipients."
Looking forward to any reply
