The project aimed at boosting electricity production from renewable energy sources and the use of green electricity in 11 European regions by defining concrete regional RES-e targets and developing and implementing regional RES-e strategies. These will identify the main barriers (such as administrative obstacles, public opposition, grid access, lack of information, frequent changes in funding regimes) and address them by well targeted information and promotion activities, thereby significantly increasing regional RES-e shares.
13 partners - many of them are regional energy agencies - from 9 countries participated in this project which was co-ordinated by the O.Ö. Energiesparverband from Austria. The project RES-e Regions includes the 11 regions Andalucia, Castillia y Leon, Copenhagen, Liguria, Navarra, Upper Austria, Rhône-Alpes, Saarland, Slovenia, Västra Götaland and Wales.
The project was finished in 2007.
