We are currently seeing a deceleration of renewable energy growth in Europe. This is partly attributed to the challenges for financing renewable energy projects. Reduced access to conventional financing options over the past few years has triggered innovative financing schemes to emerge, with crowdfunding attracting a lot of attention. The project CrowdFundRES recognises the vast potential of crowdfunding for financing renewable energy projects and brings together the three following target groups: renewable energy project developers, citizen investing their savings in renewable energy projects and crowdfunding platforms acting as intermediaries between the public and the project developers.
