LAUNCH is an EU H2020-funded project that aims to accelerate deal closure and pipeline growth for Sustainable Energy Assets through standardised material. This includes investor-grade Energy Performance Contracts, standardised risk assessment protocols for investors, a roadmap for project developers to access growth capital, and market-tested value propositions for project developers’ end-clients.
The project consortium is composed by Joule Assets Europe (Italy), leading the consortium, research institution TNO (Netherlands), BNP Paribas Fortis (Belgium), EnerSave Capital (Luxembourg) and New Energy Group (Ireland). The consortium is keen to deliver on the vision of scaling project deployment through LAUNCH and encourages contractors seeking support (in either accessing project finance or growth capital) to connect. Investors (both private and public institutions) are also strongly encouraged to make contact and contribute.
LAUNCH enables large scale aggregation of sustainable energy assets for financiers and supports contractors in growing their project pipeline. The final objective of the project is to accelerate the acceptance of SEAs as tradable securities. The project will provide a basis for accelerated and sustainable SEA market growth and aims to create a European standard for the SEA market going forward.
