2/11/2017 BRUSSELS, Belgium The SEAF (Sustainable Energy Asset Framework) consortium will present on the development of the eQuad platform, its success in building a €87 million pipeline, and additional learnings related to creating a future-oriented energy efficiency market.

About SEAF/eQuad

SEAF – the Sustainable Energy Asset Framework – is a two-year H2020 funded project, which kicked off in February 2016. Since this time, the 6-partner consortium has developed and launched eQuad – an online platform that facilitates investment in European energy efficiency products by providing third-party valuation, project performance insurance, ICP certification, due diligence, and introductions to prequalified capital sources. Already in the pre-commercial stage, SEAF has grown a pipeline of €33 million, and an investor community representing €1.2 billion of available project finance.

About the event

The SEAF Investor Forum, Project Success and Future Trends in Energy Efficiency Finance, is the fourth and final high-level conference hosted by the SEAF consortium.

Aimed at policy markets, investors, and ESCO stakeholders, the Brussels event will feature key investment funds and policy experts who will discuss:

  • How regulation can drive the creation a future oriented EE market that supports small ESCOs
  • Key investor requirements and deal-breakers for successful project finance
  • How the SEAF H2020 project has begun to bridge the finance gap and next steps for its team

The lineup of speakers will include Paul Hodson, Head of Unit for Energy Efficiency at the European Commission, ESCO Servizi Energia Ambiente srl, financial institutions Eiffel Investment Group, Demeter PartnersSI Capital, SUMA CapitalSUSI Partners, Adaxia Capital Partners, Green Investment Group, and other sustainable finance experts.

eQuad bridges the finance gap – it is not an academic exercise

Jessica Stromback, Chair of Joule Assets Europe and SEAF project coordinator, says, “The SEAF project was never intended to be an academic exercise and we are now taking its results to market. Thanks to the EU H2020 funding we have the tools and the intelligence to contribute to scaling up the energy efficiency market, building a bridge between the financial community and project developers.”
