BRUSSELS, 30 November 2016 – The Energy Efficiency Financial Institutions Group (EEFIG), co-convened by the European Commission and UNEP Finance Initiative (UNEP FI), launched the De-risking Energy Efficiency Platform (DEEP): the largest pan-EU open-source database containing detailed information and analysis of more than 7,800 industrial and buildings-related energy efficiency projects.
DEEP is a direct response to the EEFIG recommendation from its report “Energy Efficiency – the first fuel for the EU Economy: How to drive new finance for energy efficiency investments” of the need to better understand the real risks and benefits of energy efficiency investments based on market evidence and track record. By disclosing thousands of data points showing the real technical and financial data from a large number of implemented energy efficiency projects across the economy, the DEEP platform is a new source of operational risk management information, which will help project developers, financiers, and investors better assess the risks and benefits of energy efficiency investments across Europe.
ESBG and its members are a launch data provider.
