Matching Money with Green Ideas: A guide to the 2021-2027 EU budget

May 20, 2021

As the European Union raises its 2030 climate targets to emissions reduction of at least 55% on 1990 levels, Europe’s economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic must be fully aligned with the revised ambitions. Together with the Agora Energiewende team, we have compiled an explanatory guide to the EU funding landscape, explaining the key funding mechanisms and financial instruments in the EU’s budget. The guide also includes detailed overview of investment needs to de-carbonize Europe’s industry, energy, transport and building sectors.
