Financing and realising energy efficiency and renewable energy projects in industry

Realising energy efficiency and renewable projects in industry


Our goal

Project developers and industry owners face challenges financing energy efficiency (EE) and renewable energy (RE) projects, including insufficient credit, risk mitigation issues, and high transaction costs relative to capital requirements. 

TrustEE standardises project preparation and then refinances energy efficiency and renewable energy projects. Our goal is to allow project developers to realise the vast potential for energy efficiency and renewable energy across Europe. Together we can meet Europe's future industrial process heating needs with clean energy. 

Assessing, developing and financing projects

We target industrial thermal-focused EE and RE projects, which can replace or offset fossil fuel heat sources. Examples include:

  • Waste heat recovery
  • Solar thermal
  • Biogas 
  • Biomass, and 
  • Heat pumps. 

How do we work?

Project partners, supported by the Horizon 2020 Framework Programme of the European Union, analyze, and refinance energy efficiency and renewable energy projects. Our platform helps you prepare and optimise projects. One commissioned, TrustEE uses a Securitisation Vehicle (SV) to refinace projects and enable flexible project payment plans for providers and industrial customers. This approach helps SMEs to scale up their energy efficiency and renewable energy businesses.
