Wind, solar, biomass, hydropower and geothermal sources can provide renewable power, helping to make local communities more energy self-sufficient. Generating energy from local sources and creating local energy infrastructure was promoted by ENERGYREGION. The project investigated potentials for renewable energy and energy savings in five European regions of different size, economic growth and energetic profile, located in the countries participating in the project. These regions were: Lower Silesia in Poland, Southern Moravia and Region Opavsko in the Czech Republic, Podrajve Region in Slovenia and North Hesse in Germany. ENERGYREGION focused on developing solid and feasible regional and local strategies for renewable energy integration into existing energy systems and energy efficiency improvement. The project cooperated with selected local authorities in order to encourage investment in energy infrastructure and energy saving. As green energy generation from local sources is a key challenge for the whole European society, other regions and countries, especially in central Europe, can surely benefit from the project results.
The project supported the Central Europe programme priority on responsible use and protection of the environmental potentials of Central Europe and promoted innovative and sustainable approaches to the enhancement of the natural environment by using low carbon heat and electricity in households, companies and public services.
