ENERGYREGION - Effective development of dispersed renewable energy in combination with conventional energy in Regions is an EU funded project implemented through the CENTRAL EUROPE Programme and co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund. The project started on the 1st of October 2011 and will last for three years, until the end of September 2014. ENERGYREGION Project is realized by eleven teams from four European countries (Poland, Czech Republic, Slovenia and Germany).
The main goal of the project is to create a strategy of sustainable development of renewable energy sources. Energy market is a huge challenge for contemporary countries. Access to reliable and reasonably-priced energy is what national and local authorities responsible for the energy sector are currently concerned about. In the view of tightening environmental regulations, renewable energy technologies are becoming more competitive. In order to fulfill more and more strict regulations in the area of environment protection and energy generation the ENERGYREGION Project will aspire to create initiatives promoting renewable energy and increasing social awareness. It will aim to develop regional strategies to enhance investments in energy infrastructure. Moreover, it will try to reveal hidden potential for energy savings in different regions.
International cooperation will help to share information on renewable energy sources and energy efficiency. It will enable exchange of know how and the best practices. Learning from those who are more advanced will be the best way to avoid mistakes in the area of renewable energy increase and energy efficiency improvement.
