The low-carbon priority aims at increasing the use of renewable energies and improving energy efficiency while exploiting the economic growth potential of the low-carbon sector. The projects funded under this priority will contribute to enhancing knowledge and skills with regard to efficient energy management of public infrastructures. They will develop and implement territorially based low-carbon strategies and support mobility in functional urban areas hence helping to tackle the challenges central Europe is facing in energy production and consumption.

Interreg CENTRAL EUROPE will fund 9 new low-carbon projects
following the second call for proposals. Around 16 million Euro from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) will be transferred to transnational project partnerships over coming years to improve energy efficiency in public infrastructure and to help better plan low carbon urban mobility.
Updated energy statistical datasheets of all EU countries have just been published by the European Commission. These datasheets cover the period 1990-2015 and make it possible to track how each country's energy usage and greenhouse gas emissions patterns have changed over time.
The funding programme CENTRAL EUROPE 2007-13 was our predecessor. More than 1.300 public institutions and private businesses closely
cooperated in 124 transnational projects for the benefit of our regions. Take a look at what Interreg achieved already back then:
