A step-change in cleantech growth investment
While Europe is well-equipped to finance new technologies at the early stages, both public and private funders are lacking when it comes to industrialisation. We need public funding to become more accessible to scale-ups, and to mobilize private investors for maximal leverage.
A green demand shock
The scale up of clean technologies depends on strong and stable demand signals for green solutions. Securing ambitious, binding targets for adoption of clean technologies, establishing an effective and a predictable carbon price, levelling the playing field with incumbents, leveraging green procurement and creating lead markets will get us to scale faster.
Removing barriers to scale
Harmonise policies, permitting procedures and standards between incumbents and new players, between member states, and internationally, to help cleantech companies scale faster across the EU and in global markets.
