|Evaluation 2014-20 of the Structural Funds|
In December 2014, a quantitative analysis called "Planned EU funds allocations 2014 -2020 in Central and Eastern Europe: Ensuring the shift towards sustainability" was carried out by CEE Bankwatch Network and Friends of the Earth Europe.
In this analysis, it was found that the EU funds allocated to Energy Efficiency significantly increased compared to the last funding period. Moreover, overall allocations for Renewables increase slightly as well (see Figure 1).
1. Allocations to Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Sources, 2007-2013
In terms of the overall share of sustainable energy infrastructure, it can be observed that there is an increase, but remains small relative to overall investment needs towards a decarbonization target (see Figure 2).

grids) of total ERDF and CF.
On a different note, this
analysis indicates that private housing sector receives a good part
of funds; now it is important to ensure accessibility
groups who donít have own capital/capacity to implement energy efficiency
