How to get banks to finance your community energy project

Times are changing. These days banks are much more confident with renewable energy projects. In the latest episode of our SCCALE 20-30-50 podcast series, hosted by Energy Cities, we delve into the jungle of financial engineering for energy communities today. But we also want to understand what this has changed for the traditional banking sector.

We spoke with Jim Williame from the Belgian citizen cooperative (& SCCALE 20 30 50 partner) Ecopower and Ronald Korpershoek from Rabobank. Both know quite a bit about money and where a community-owned renewables project can find it. In the episode, you will also have the opportunity to learn more about:

  • How to get started 
  • The different types of financing
  • How to make a bankable financial plan
