|Details||9:00 - 13:00h (Invitation only)|

The ambitious European Green Deal will likely result in more ambitious CO2 targets for 2030 and will require significant mobilization of private finance towards realizing EU energy and climate goals. In this context, EEFIG's work and support to up-scaling energy efficiency investments become even more important and relevant.
Against this background, the EEFIG Plenary Meeting will provide the participants with a combination of keynote speeches on the most recent policy and market developments, high-level panel discussions on current issues in energy efficiency finance, updates on ongoing and planned EEFIG activities and options for members to engage, as well as excellent networking opportunities. The agenda for the meeting is included below.
The Plenary will be at the Adolphe Max Room, Hotel Le Plaza, Boulevard Adolphe Max 118 - 126, 1000 Brussels. This is 400m (5 min walk) from the Crowne Plaza, where the Covenant of Mayors Investment Forum - Energy Efficiency Finance Market Place will be held in the afternoon.
