Crowdfunding the ecological transition: report of the seminar of the 27th of June

Crowdfunding ecological transitionThe seminar gathered more than 70 stakeholders of the ecological transition crowdfunding sector:

  • Crowdfunding platforms
  • Local authorities
  • Projects leaders
  • Financers
  • Researchers
  • Association directors.

Two roundtable discussions were held and dealt with major challenges to the growth and balance of the sector:

  • What incentives to go along the rise of crowdfunding for the deployment of renewable energy production ?
  • How to spread the use of crowdfunding to other sectors of the ecological transition ?

The discussions gave the stakeholders an opportunity to:

  • Explain the actions of the crowdfunding platforms, with some projects being presented to display the diversity of the legal and financial structure
  • Discuss the evolution of the regulatory framework applying to them
  • Analyze the incentive mechanisms developped by the ministère de la Transition écologique et solidaire.

The second roundtable discussion allowed to talk of the state of the sector in other european countries. The speakers also presented crowdfunding initiatives for the ecological transition beyond the sector of renewable energy production, in France and in Europe.

Presentation of the Guidebook to crowdfunding

During the seminar was also introduced the Guidebook to crowdfunding for cities and territorial development, to which I4CE contributed as a member of Financement Participatif France’s Territorial Partnership Commission.

The discussions otherwise fed I4CE’s ongoing study on incentive mechanisms for the use of crowdfunding in renewable energy production projects.
