The low-carbon priority aims at increasing the use of renewable energies and improving energy efficiency while exploiting the economic growth potential of the low-carbon sector. The projects funded under this priority will contribute to enhancing knowledge and skills with regard to efficient energy management of public infrastructures. They will develop and implement territorially based low-carbon strategies and support mobility in functional urban areas hence helping to tackle the challenges central Europe is facing in energy production and consumption.
Our third call for project proposals closed on 25 January. 23 project proposals were submitted in the low carbon priority. The applications will now undergo the administrative and thematic quality checks. New projects are expected to start early 2019.
A new report from the International Renewable Energy Agency shows that the use of renewables could grow. Individual EU countries have the potential to deploy more renewables cost effectively, especially by generating more solar and wind energy.
