Policy Dialogue



Policy Dialogue webinar: 15 November 2023, 10:30-12:30 CET

11 experts and over 100 participants joined the first Policy Dialogue webinar to discuss how cities can shift from relying on public funding to successfully using innovative financing instruments when subsidies run out. We brought together public authorities and municipal energy agencies with representatives of EU institutions and private investors to talk about cities’ priorities and the barriers that impact the speed of the energy transformation. Learn more about the recommendations, plans and available support in this link.

Policy dialogue consultations on cities’ access to innovative financing instruments

A unique opportunity to share your needs and recommendations with decision-makers – you can shape our Policy Dialogue, the webinars and our input at international events! Public authorities' opinions, suggestions and concerns about delivering energy transition with reduced dependence on subsidies are very important to us and we want to ensure they are heard.

What is PROSPECT+ Policy dialogue

We strive to ensure that recommendations and concerns from public authorities reach decision-makers, paving the way for improved policy incentives and conditions, and fostering interest in innovative financing instruments for climate and energy.  

Our policy dialogue is based on the feedback we get from public authorities about the actual opportunities to access appropriate financing for implementing sustainable energy projects. We regularly consult Prospect+ Alumni and the Community of Practice members. 

Join the consultations

If you would like to share your suggestions and concerns about the future of funding your region's projects, or if you would like to join policy-focused discussions and events, contribute your input here.  

You don't need to be a senior expert in the field - as long as you have been involved in climate and energy-related projects and can share your observations about the impact of public authorities' access to appropriate funding and financing. 

What will happen with your feedback? 

We will organise policy-focused events in order to facilitate public authorities' access to more financing options, sharing your positions, and recommendations and flagging up the barriers you face when looking for financing for your projects. We will also organise or participate in various international events in Brussels and internationally, where we will bring attention to your needs, challenges, concerns and advice.
