The European Investment Bank and European Comission launched ELENA, a new financing scheme for supporting sustainable energy investments projects or programs. As part of the Intelligent Energy Europe program, ELENA stands for “European Local ENergy Assistance” and it is operational since September 2009. A budget of EUR 15 million euro is available for the first year of facility operation.

ELENA assists cities and regions in developing their sustainable energy investment projects and mobilising investments. It covers major part of the technical assistance costs related to the preparation of eligible investment projects or programmes and focuses on retrofitting of public and private buildings, sustainable building, energy-efficient district heating and cooling networks, environmentally-friendly transport.

Further information is available in the Energy section of the official website of the European Comission, as well as on the European Investment Bank Website.
