CROWDTHERMAL partner CrowdfundingHub has analysed 10 best practise cases for the use of alternative financing in the development of renewable energy projects.

The focus in these case studies is on inclusive and community-based financing models where financing is also used as a means to raise awareness around the potential of renewable energy sources.

Indeed, in several renewable energy sectors such as wind or solar, the use of alternative finance mechanisms is growing rapidly. A strong emphasis is in general on community-based financing models, such as crowdfunding, financing local projects of all sizes. Other innovative financing mechanisms include Social Impact Bonds, public match funding, guarantee schemes or green bonds.

We are presenting the 10 case studies selected by CrowdfundingHub in a social media campaign. The examples are part of a benchmarking exercise that will help the project team develop concepts for alternative financing mechanisms for geothermal energy.
