Five sectors that have the potential for greater use of financial instruments in the future are the subject of the new fi-compass sectoral stocktaking studies. As well as a full report and Executive Summary, five case studies and separate sectoral fiches have been produced to provide targeted information for managing authorities seeking to use financial instruments to support investment in the following key sectors:
- Renewable Energy (RE);
- Urban Development and Transport (UDT);
- Environment (including air, water and waste);
- Information and Communications Technology (ICT) infrastructure; and
- Research, Development and Innovation in Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (RDI in SMEs).
The reports identify existing potential investment opportunities, together with an analysis of where new investment opportunities are expected to arise in the future. The report goes on to consider the scope to expand financial instruments in these sectors in the short and medium-term, including in the 2021-2027 programming period.
