EIB Vice-President Lilyana Pavlova stated that the EIB is committed to stepping up its support for Europe’s energy sector through the Bank’s lending, fund management and advisory activities: ‘our combined package of support can play a crucial role in speeding up the transition to a low-carbon economy’.
The joint announcement was accompanied by contributions how financial instruments are used in Portugal, Slovakia and Bulgaria and what potential they have to support Cohesion policy in the 2021-2027 programming period.
The subsequent fi-compass thematic workshop focussed on the key features of the new model financial instruments that will support the REPowerEU and New European Bauhaus initiatives. The workshop provided an early opportunity for participants to learn more about the model financial instruments and ask questions to fi-compass experts from the Directorate-General for Regional and Urban Policy (DG REGIO) and the EIB on how the model financial instruments may be implemented in the 2021-2027 programming period.
