The Nordic Way – Innovative Financing of Green Projects

How can businesses, municipalities and regional authorities together find innovative ways to finance sustainable projects within the field of energy, mobility and energy-effective buildings?

The Stavanger Region European Office, together with EUROCITIES and their partners in the EU-project PROSPECT, invites you to join our webinar on innovative financing in the Nordics on the 27th of October from 12.00-14.00. We will hear from the Norwegian energy company Lyse, the non-profit organisation Nordic Edge and the Municipality of Gjesdal, who will give us their insights into how they financed their innovative projects. The overall goal of the EU-project PROSPECT is to find sustainable solutions to how cities and regions can reach their climate goals by using innovative financing. In this webinar, the focus will be on how innovative financing takes place in the Nordic countries.

Please note that places are limited.
