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.
Our fourth call offers an unique opportunity to combine Interreg CENTRAL EUROPE outputs and results with those delivered by projects funded under directly managed EU programmes. Thematic focus of our fourth call for project proposals in low carbon priority is on
Partners in our CE-HEAT project developed a new methodology for better utilizing waste heat. This methodology is now tested in a Slovenian hydro-power plant in Fala, where the immense heat produced by the plant will no longer drift away into the atmosphere. Instead it will warm the nearby museum and help it to cut energy bills by about 60%.
Did you know that renewables are currently the leading source of electricity generation in the EU? And that in the years 1995-2016, the amount of solar and wind energy capacity increased 100 times? This information and much more is available in the latest EU energy statistical pocketbook.
