Europe’s cleantech industry grows impatient for more ambitious investment policies

📰In the News: Why Europe Needs a Cleantech Investment Plan 📰

More than a year ago, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen announced the Green Deal Industrial Plan in #Davos, to make Europe "the home of cleantech." In January 2024, with no fresh funding in sight to scale up cleantech, this vision risks falling flat.

Last week, our Executive Director, Jules Besnainou sat down with Financial TimesSustainable Views and shared the needs of the cleantech community:

🎯  A strategic list of priority cleantech sectors that are ready to scale in the EU, instead of a long bucket list
📈  Cleantech Investment Plan that meets our ambition while being fiscally efficient: leveraging public guarantees, mobilising institutional investors and directing ETS revenues
💡 A unified European cleantech strategy instead of 27 separate strategies, including on funding, infrastructure and skills

With appreciation to our colleague Ciarán Humphreys of I4CE - Institut de l'économie pour le climat / Institute for Climate Economics for the great collaboration on this timely subject. We also thank Claudia A. R. De Meulemeester and Florence Jones for writing this insightful article.
