Abstract

The INTERREG IVC RENERGY project aims at contributing to the achievement of the Europe 2020 targets and improving the effectiveness of local sustainable energy strategies by demonstrating the relevance of a holistic approach to tackle local community needs, cultural and infrastructural characteristics. A “three pillar” approach is used to maximize knowledge transfer and results uptake through synergic actions. Case studies and Energy Labs represent the key building blocks of a structured interregional cooperation contributing to the achievement of the project objectives and ensuring continuous dialogue and cooperation between experts, producers/suppliers and end-users. A selection of good practices will be transferred into the Local Implementation Plans including key policy recommendations to be disseminated to target stakeholders groups.
