EFSI 2.0 Regulation: expected to enter into force on 1 January 2018   

To further boost investment, to avoid disruptions in financing and to assure project promoters that they can still plan projects after the initial investment period, the European Fund for Strategic Investments is extended from mid-2018 to the end of 2020, and its investment target is increased from €315 billion to at least €500 billion.

EFSI 2.0 has the following features: increased transparency, larger proportion of sustainable projects, greater focus on small projects, more technical support at the local level, improving the business environment and bringing down investment barriers.
