In October, the Interreg Europe Monitoring Committee conditionally approved 66 projects received in the second call for proposals. 16 of these projects target low-carbon economy. Together with the projects accepted in the first call, this brings the number of projects in low-carbon economy Policy Learning Platform to 31.

The experts of the Low-Carbon Economy Policy Learning Platform have started to analyse the approved projects. All projects have been provisionally placed in three subgroups: sustainable mobility, energy efficiency and renewable energy, and cmart grids. This should help any reader easily find projects that spark their interest.

Sustainable mobility

Sustainable mobility is a hot-topic – 14 of the approved projects are covering it one way or another. Some projects, like RESOLVE, are aimed at reducing the carbon footprint of traffic within the cities. Others, like CYCLEWALK MODE, hope to stimulate the use of alternative transport methods such as walking and cycling.

Energy efficiency

The energy efficiency group has ten projects. A large share of the projects improve the energy efficiency of buildings by renovating old buildings, REBUS, and stimulate near zero CO2 emission policies, ZEROCO2. The use of financial instruments for energy efficiency is the focus of FINERPOL.

Renewable energy and smart grids

The renewable energy and smart grids group includes projects creating opportunities for improved policies towards renewable energy sources, BIO4ECO, or smart grids, SET-UP. At this moment, the renewable energy and smart grids group consists of seven approved projects. 

The Interreg Europe Policy Learning Platforms are here to stimulate knowledge exchange. The projects of the same family will be encouraged to learn from each other. To fine-tune the services and products of the Platforms to the user needs, we encourage you to share your ideas with Marie-José Zondag, mj.zondag@policylearning.eu Thematic Manager for low-carbon economy.
