National Roundtable on Financing of Energy Efficiency in Social Housing in Denmark
Event date: 11 May 2022
Scandic Hotel, Copenhagen
The national roundtable focused on the need for financing the green transition in the social housing sector and will address the possible integration of ESCO related solutions, the interaction with new Green Guarantee Scheme, and the possibility of using green loans from the financial sector (mortgage and pension companies) supplementing the National Building Fund.
The event was held in cooperation with the EU-funded SUPER-i project which aims to help increase investment and data collection on energy efficiency in the social housing sector. The project will support the financing of energy renovations through the establishment of a direct dialogue between financial institutions, private investors and social housing associations. This will be done in relation to three pilot projects in Denmark, Italy and Slovenia.
The event was divided into a plenary and two parallel topic sessions:
Group 1: How can ESCO 2.0 be integrated into the green renovation of the building stock within the social housing sector, and in relation to an interaction with the National Building Fund and the Green Guarantee Scheme?
Based on the pilot project in the Housing Association of Fruehøjgaard, Herning
Group 2: How can the interaction with the financial sector be optimized to get more funds in play, and as an independent supplement to the National Building Fund.
Based on the pilot project in the Housing Association of Himmerland, Aalborg
