The EU has set itself ambitious targets to achieve clean and secure energy for tomorrow. An optimal use of available tools is necessary to meet these targets. A wide range of technologies and methods exist to improve energy efficiency, turn renewables into viable energy sources and reduce emissions. However, market conditions prevent them from reaching their full potential. This is where the Intelligent Energy – Europe programme comes in.
The Intelligent Energy – Europe (IEE) programme is giving a boost to clean and sustainable solutions. It supports their use and dissemination and the Europe-wide exchange of related knowledge and know-how.
Targeted funding is provided for creative projects putting this idea into practice
The projects help to further the three main objectives:
- Promoting energy efficiency and encouraging the rational use of energy sources;
- Increasing the use of new and renewable energy sources as well as encouraging energy diversification;
- Stimulating energy efficiency and renewables in the field of transport.
