Welcome to Triple-A

We are happy to announce the launch of the new H2020 project “Triple-A: Enhancing at an Early Stage the Investment Value Chain of Energy Efficiency Projects”.

Triple-A officially started on the 1st of September 2019 and is funded by the EU Horizon 2020 programme.

The overall aim of the Triple-A project is to assist financial institutions increase their deployment of capital in energy efficiency, making investments more transparent.

The kick-off meeting was held in Athens, Greece on the 1st and 2nd of October 2019 to establish the relations between the partners and define the work plan of the following months.


Triple-A Aim

Triple-A will identify energy efficiency investments, aiming to reduce the respective time and effort required at the crucial phase of the investments’ conceptualization, as well as to increase transparency and efficiency of respective decision making. The goal is to make energy efficiency investments more transparent, predictable and attractive for investors/ financiers and project developers. In this respect, the main challenge lies in identifying which investments can be considered as Triple-A investments, fostering sustainable growth, while also having an extremely strong capacity to meet their commitments, already from the first stages of investments generation and pre-selection/ pre-evaluation.

The project has a very practical result-oriented approach, seeking to address this challenge, answering the following questions:

  • How to assess the financing instruments and risks an early stage?
  • How to agree on the Triple-A investments, based on selected key performance indicators?
  • How to assign the identified investment ideas with possible financing schemes?


Triple-A Scheme

The Triple-A scheme is comprised of three critical steps, with the following main outputs:

Case Studies

The eight case-study countries were strategically selected to promote diversity across a number of factors.
