Summary

The project, “Energy 4 Cohesion,” prepared a knowledge base for the implementation of Renewable Energy (RE) and Energy Efficiency (EE) actions in less developed rural regions of Europe. The project articulated which RE actions are relevant for receiving financial support with Structural and Cohesion Funds during the 2007-2013 period. The project demonstrated best practice in eight selected target regions through the design of comprehensive Master Plans. The aim was to facilitate the implementation of RE actions in the selected regions by identifying the best funding mechanisms and suitable cooperation schemes.
