The learning event is organised within the framework of the H2020 projects RoundBaltic and GREEN Home.  Both projects are a  part of the European Commission’s Smart Finance for Smart Buildings and Sustainable Energy Investment Forum initiatives where GREEN Home focuses on support to achieve the goals of the integrated National Energy and Climate Plan (NECP) and RoundBaltic focuses on enabling financing of energy efficiency in the Baltic region.


The general scope of learning events under RoundBaltic is to address key aspects that can help accelerating energy efficiency investments in Poland, Latvia and Denmark as well as across the entire Baltic Sea Region (BSR). The learning events will explore the specific challenges and solutions of these target countries and to the extent appropriate the prospects of replication in the BSR and EU wide. 

The scope of this learning event is to assist public authorities and other stakeholders in making clever decisions by unlocking the potential of energy efficiency investments in the multifamily housing stock in Germany and Poland.

The learning of the event will feed into the stakeholder dialogue of RoundBaltic and GREEN Home and the project’s efforts on identifying and enabling energy efficiency finance actions and the findings will be disseminated via news bulletins

Target participants

Multifamily building owners and property managers, financing institutions, public authorities, policy makers and other actors involved in sustainable energy finance in Germany, in Poland and other Baltic Sea Region countries and to some extent EU-wide.
