In June the EU funded EeMAP project is launching a ground-breaking pilot of a European ‘energy efficiency mortgage’ with a number of major financial institutions. Join this webinar to find out which banks are taking part and in which countries. You will also hear from different businesses about how they are positioning themselves as leaders in Europe’s growing market for green mortgages and green bonds.

The session will be chaired by Dr Stephen Richardson, Technical Lead for EeMAP at the World Green Building Council’s Europe network.

Confirmed speakers include:

  • Jennifer Johnson, Head of Legal & Economic Affairs at EMF-ECBC (EeMAP Coordinator). Jennifer will give an update on the pilot, which banks are involved and what support is being offered by European institutions.
  • Barry Lynham, Global Director of Strategy and Communication at Knauf Insulation. Barry will discuss how mortgages can solve major barriers to energy efficiency investment and increase renovation rates.
  • Rob Cartwright, Director of Energy Solutions at eTech Solutions Limited. Rob will explain how eTech’s innovative software platform could help streamline the property assessments for energy efficient mortgages.

This is likely to be a very popular event and places may be limited – Register early to avoid disappointment!

EeMAP press release – Dutch banks meet for first EeMAP roundtable in the Netherlands

PRESS RELEASE   –   PRESS RELEASE   –   PRESS RELEASE

Brussels, 19 January 2018 – For immediate release

Dutch banks meet for first EeMAP roundtable in the Netherlands

Today, the Energy Efficient Mortgages Initiative, which brings together two Horizon 2020 funded Projects, the Energy Efficient Mortgages Action Plan (EeMAP) and the Energy Efficient Data Protocol & Portal (EeDaPP), takes another important step forward with the third in a series of national Roundtable events, this time focussing on the Netherlands.

The event, organised in Amsterdam and hosted by ING, brings together representatives from the Dutch banking industry for an exchange of views on the practical implementation in the Dutch market of the Initiative, which seeks to scale-up mortgage financing for energy efficient buildings at European level and collect and analyse related data.

The outcomes of today’s discussions will feed into the EeMAP Pilot Phase, which will test the framework for energy efficient mortgages produced by the EeMAP project’s technical committees. The Pilot Phase is expected to begin in June 2018 with a view to delivering a final framework for an energy efficient mortgage product in the final stage of the EeMAP Initiative in 2019.

The first EeMAP national case study, with a focus on Italy, was launched on 13 November 2017 in Milan; the second, with a focus on Belgium, took place on 15 November 2017. A series of other national Roundtable events are in the pipeline for later this year.

Luca Bertalot, EeMAP Coordinator, commented:

“We are delighted to have the opportunity to discuss our Energy Efficient Mortgages Initiative with the Dutch banking community. Exchanges of this kind with local stakeholders are invaluable for identifying and incorporating national best practices into the framework at European level and, ultimately, for the long-term success of the Initiative.”

EeMAP Dutch Case Study Roundtable in Amsterdam 19/01/2018

The third EeMAP National Roundtable, with a focus on Netherlands, took place in Amsterdam on 19 January.

The Roundtable brought together experts from the Dutch and European banking, construction, valuation and engineering sectors with a strong interest in building energy efficiency and its financing. The purpose of the event was to gather practical input from national practitioners for the EeMAP Initiative, which seeks to scale-up mortgage financing for energy efficient buildings at European level. The outcomes of the event will feed into the EeMAP Pilot Phase, which will test the framework for energy efficient mortgages produced by the EeMAP project’s Technical Committees.
