About IEE

The objective of the Intelligent Energy – Europe II  Programme (“IEE II”) is to contribute to secure, sustainable and competitively priced energy for Europe, by providing for action:

• to foster energy efficiency and the rational use of energy resources;

• to promote new and renewable energy sources and to support energy diversification;

• to promote energy efficiency and the use of new and renewable energy sources in transport

Intelligent Energy – Europe covers action in the following fields:

Energy efficiency and rational use of energy resources (SAVE), including:

• Improvement of energy efficiency and the rational  use of energy, in particular in the building and industry sectors;

• Supporting the preparation and application of legislative measures.

New and renewable energy resources (ALTENER), including:

• Promoting new and renewable energy sources for centralised and decentralised production of  electricity, heat and cooling, and thus supporting the diversification of energy sources;

• Integrating new and renewable energy sources into the local environment and the energy systems;

• Supporting the preparation and application of legislative measures.

Energy in transport (STEER) to promote energy efficiency and the use of new and renewable energy sources in transport, including:

• Supporting initiatives relating to all energy aspects of transport and the diversification of fuels;

• Promoting renewable fuels and energy efficiency in transport;

• Supporting the preparation and application of legislative measures.

Integrated initiatives combine several of the above specific fields or relating to certain EU priorities. They may include actions integrating energy efficiency and renewable energy sources in several sectors of the economy and/or combining various instruments, tools and actors within the same action or project. Action combining several of the specific fields (SAVE, ALTENER and STEER) or relating to certain EU  priorities may include:

(a) Integrating energy efficiency and renewable energy sources in several sectors of the economy;

(b) Combining various instruments, tools and actors within the same action or project.

For the work programme 2013, the following four integrated initiatives are proposed:

• Energy efficiency and renewable energy use in buildings

• BUILD UP Skills, the Sustainable Building Workforce Initiative – Training and  Qualification in the field of energy efficiency and renewable energy (Pillar II)

• Local energy leadership

Furthermore, proposals must:

1. Result in the launch of tangible investments which produce quantified results in terms of energy saved, RES supply increased, GHG reduced, before the end of the project duration.

2. Address investment projects which have been prioritised in Sustainable Energy Action Plans, or similar energy/climate plans.

3. Include a learning process and capacity building for relevant stakeholders at local/regional level where the investments are launched.
