24 May 2016, Brussels, Belgium
CrowdFundRES organised two workshops, one with crowdfunding platforms and one with renewable energy project developers around Europe, on the 24th of May in Brussels. The project partners shared their experience through case studies, presented the results of the project’s EU wide survey as well as discussed crowdfunding regulation and renewable energy market developments in Europe. The participants shared their insights and provide input to the development of guidelines and recommendations for project developers and crowdfunding platforms in using crowdfunding for renewable energy projects.
The workshops took place in parallel and at the same location with ECN’s second edition of CrowdCamp with a special focus on crowdfunding for renewable energies, energy efficiency and clean-tech. CrowdCamp involved various stakeholders, including crowdfunding platforms, renewable energies developers, EU policymakers, clean tech and energy efficiency entrepreneurs, etc. to discuss crowdfunding as an enabler of a more sustainable planet.
