The Revolving Fund of Riga

The Revolving Fund of Riga

Establishement of the Revolving Fund in Riga is an important measure that will allow adding sustainability to the process of multiappartment house renovation. After analysing experience of other cities having established similar funds, having developed the financial innovative solution, Revolving Fund in Riga is to be established in 2016.

With the availability of the planned funds, the Revolving Fund will be able to start systemic renovation in Riga at 12 houses per year. Although initial number of houses should be five in order to pilot the project. After the Revolving Fund will prove its sustainability more funds should be attracted in order to achieve the aim of renovating 6000 buildings in the near future.  

Revolving Fund of Riga was established within the Infinite Solutions (INnovative FINancIng for Local SusTainable Energy Solutions) is a project launched in the beginning of 2014 under the IEE programme.

Local authorities involved in the INFINITE Solutions project are located in countries which will benefit from the EU Cohesion Policy 2014-2020 and which will need to implement the new Energy Efficiency Directive.

These policies will support energy efficiency and renewable energy projects and in particular energy-efficiency upgrades in public and private buildings via innovative financing instruments rather than grants. This will require strong technical, financial, legal and coordination skills and expertise which are currently missing, thus hindering policy implementation.
