SEIFA - Sustainable energy activation

The “SEIFA – Sustainable Energy Investing and Financing Activation” project is funded under the Horizon 2020 scheme. The coordinator of the project is PEDAL Consulting. Its goal is to create incentives for private investors to finance a deep renovation of industrial plants, energy supply facilities and energy service companies.

Industrial Focus

The project’s main objective in this respect is to establish a fund that will invest into industrial companies, such as:

  • manufacturing companies,
  • industrial parks implementing sustainable energy-related projects,
  • industrial and sustainable energy facilities (i.e. sustainable energy parks, sustainable fuels and infrastructure),
  • energy service providers (i.e. energy technology companies and renewable energy developers).

Sustainable Focus

Moreover, the Fund’s investments aim to create a Net-zero carbon emission and a fully Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) compliant portfolio. Therefore, every potential investment will be assessed against sustainability criteria, following the EU Taxonomy for Sustainable Activities and the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR).

Regional Focus

The project focuses mainly on the region of the Central and Eastern Europe (CEE Region), including twelve member states of the European Union (EU): Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Germany, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia.

The SEIFA will also involve neighbouring countries of the aforementioned participating countries (EU Associated).


The SEIFA project will provide incentives to private investors to decarbonise the industry sector. How? It will establish a fund with the aim to accelerate the pathways towards Net-zero carbon emission.
