Video – PROSPECT+ – How can local and regional authorities meet the climate and energy goals?

The climate targets are increasingly ambitious and the scale of the challenge faced by local and regional authorities all across Europe requires increased use of other-than-subsidies financing instruments for investments in sustainable energy and low-emission mobility. This webinar introduced the variety of innovative financing instruments and the opportunities to get an in-depth understanding of their practical use through best-practice exchange with peers across Europe under a capacity-building project PROSPECT+. Participants also learnt about the opportunity to join the project as a mentee (until 28 of January 2022).
