The "FIPEE Investment Forum in energy and environment sectors" is organized in the framework of the project "Fostering International partnerships between companies and/or institutions operating in energy and environment sectors", funded by the Italian Ministry for Ecological Transition and implemented by UNIDO ITPO Italy.
The project aims to support commercialization and scale-up of sustainable energy and environmental technologies and projects in Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) among the partner countries and Italy through promotion of investment and trade.
This will be achieved by mentoring businesses and projects, helping them build capacity and by facilitating access to financing. The services offered will be tailored to specific markets and open avenues for SMEs to grow and upscale. At the same time, UNIDO will work with partners to establish and strengthen markets. The market intelligence gathered together with regional or global best practices and norms inform the shaping of the demand and market pull. This, in turn, will create demand for technology facilitation, innovation, commercialization, entrepreneurship and upscaling.
Cleantech SMEs will be provided with the opportunity to contribute to the transition to a low-carbon economy and benefit from economic opportunities in the sector.
