ManagEnergy Master Class, 2nd session, 7-8-9 May 2018
The initiative will empower energy agencies to facilitate and support sustainable energy investments at local/regional level.
Staff of energy agencies from 17 EU countries learns from experienced trainers on how to develop and implement market services to support sustainable energy project investments and bring the benefits of the low carbon economy to their local and regional communities.
The 3 trainers: Christiane Egger (OÖ Energiesparverband – AT), Paul Kenny (Tipperary Energy Agency -IE) and Seamus Hoyne (Limerick Institute of Technology – IE) will focus on how to stimulate energy agency staff to use financial tools and reflect on potential barriers for project development and financing.
Through lessons and group exercises, participants will learn how to evaluate the main financial indicators i.e., Internal Rate of Return, Net Present Value, cost of capital, financial risk analysis/management. Split in groups, they will develop business cases and experience how to pitch their project concepts and engage with different stakeholders on profitability and strategic value, financial viability, technical and maintenance issues.
This is the second session of module 1, taking place from 7 to 9th of May 2018 in the Belgian Comics Art Museum in Brussels.
ManagEnergy is the European Commission initiative for helping regional and local energy agencies to become leaders in the energy transition. It is implemented by a consortium led by the Limerick Institute of Technology.
