1. Cooperating on increasing the share of renewable energy supply and demand in North - West Europe
North-West Europe is one of the highest energy consuming regions in the EU and faces a number of energy-related challenges, including the low share of renewables in the production and consumption mix and NWE’s strong dependence on non-renewable energy sources. NWE regions thus need to improve renewable energy distribution and generation infrastructure to reach the EU 2030 targets and to reduce GHG emissions.
In this context, in 2018 the NWE Programme launched a targeted call to support projects that contribute to increasing the share of renewable energy supply and demand in North-West Europe.
For project activities, the Programme is particularly looking for projects that deal with demonstration, implementation and roll-out, and contribute to one of the Specific Objectives of Priority 2: Low carbon. Thus, all guiding principles mentioned in the Cooperation Programme under each Specific Objective apply
