• Call for experts to participate in 2nd ICP Technical Forum for Industry

The Investor Confidence Project Europe, funded by the European Commission, is designed to unlock access to financing for the buildings, industry, district energy and street lighting markets by standardising how energy efficiency projects are developed, documented and measured.

ICP Europe’s objective is to increase the flow of investment into energy efficiency by developing and deploying standardised protocols for developing and documenting energy efficiency projects, thus reducing transaction costs and enabling project aggregation, through the provision of the Investor Ready Energy Efficiency (IREETM) label.

Currently, protocols for industry are being developed and it is important that these protocols are reviewed by experts. The ICP Technical Forum is an advisory group of experts representing a wide range of sectors and expertise that provides high-level feedback on the ICP protocols and supporting tools during the development process.

The next Technical Forum is on October 25th. Whether you have already joined the Technical Forum or this is your first time, your participation is needed. For more information, go to the ICP Europe website.
