ECH addresses EU and global energy and climate change challenges, which require considerable private and public investment and new business models.
The European Commission has estimated a need of some €200 billion for the next three years for Europe alone for grids, electricity generation, energy efficiency and industry.

Another strand will be carbon finance.
