If we want to increase the number of renewable projects in Europe, we need to set up the right policy frameworks and to connect the right actors (policy-makers, citizens, companies, NGOs…) with each other. This is, what the Renewable Networking Platform project aims at, while monitoring the advances in renewable policies both at national and sub-national levels.
While the European Parliamentary network EUFORES and some partners will assess Member State efforts, Energy Cities will focus on renewable energy deployment by regional and local authorities. Together with partner organisations, we will particularly look into experiences and needs in six priority countries : Spain, The Netherlands, France, Poland, Slovakia and Czech Republic.
The main aim of our work is to amplify local voices in European renewables politics to ensure that the at least 27% renewable target is met !
