Abstract

Green crowdfunding is an innovative financing vehicle that allows small investors to contribute towards the improved energy performance of buildings and, at the same time, provides an attractive source of funds for project owners or developers. Social media is of key importance for marketing crowdfunding projects. Some first success stories show how crowdfunding can be an attractive and sustainable business model. Nevertheless, time will tell whether or not this business model can handle more ambitious and comprehensive renovation strategies.
