The aim of this module is to develop the core skills and competences of Energy Agencies to understand, facilitate, and support an energy “investment concept” or project investment. The programme provides an overview of market facilitation services and that Energy Agencies can provide to enable projects to be progressed from concept through to implementation. The module covers topics such as activating market actors, identifying promising "candidate projects", aggregating projects through pooling (projects) and/or bundling (owners), and establishing contacts with the financing community. Financing tools and solutions are introduced, along with key approaches and finance knowledge. The module draws on experiences and knowledge from a range of relevant and successful EU Initiatives and Projects.
