NESOI invites energy initiatives on islands to enroll for a free online course on community energy ownership organised by Friends of the Earth Europe. 

Are you involved in a community renewable energy project and want to improve the skills that will help you in your journey?

Are you interested in learning more about the European energy system and how it relates to local action in your community?

The 19th edition of the EU Regions Week is set to take place on 11-14 October looks to address the  key themes of Green Transition, Cohesion, Digital transition and Citizens engagement.

At the kick-off meeting of the 2021 EU Regions week held on 28 January, the organisers of the European Week of Regions and Cities (#EURegionsWeek), the biggest annual Brussels-based event dedicated to cohesion policy, defined the thematic focus of the upcoming 19th edition.

The European Islands Facility NESOI closes its first open call with 117 applications from islands belonging to over 15 different EU countries.

The first open call from the European Island Facility NESOI that offers grants of up to € 60k per proposal as well as up to € 60K worth of Technical Assistance to help local European islands reach their energy transition ambitions, closed on the 18th of December 2020.

The EU Climate Pact is an initiative by the Commission for all Europeans to give everyone a voice and space to design new climate actions, share best practices, launch grassroots activities and showcase solutions that others can follow. The EU Islands Secretariat has been a front-runner in connecting islands, fostering networks of regional and national go

The first open call from the European Island Facility NESOI offers grants of up to € 60k per proposal as well as up to € 60K worth of Technical Assistance to help local European islands reach their energy transition ambitions.

Join the digital event “Energy Transition on European Islands: from innovation to implementation: how to make the energy transition on islands a reality?” on Thursday 29th October from 13.00 to 15.00 CEST.

Do you know that there are more than 2200 inhabited islands in the EU?

Despite having access to renewable sources of energy, such as wind, sun and wave energy, many of them depend on expensive fossil fuel imports for their energy supply.

Between the 26th and 29th of October the Clean Energy for EU Islands Secretariat will be hosting it annual forum. The programme of the online event is focusing on the linkages between the EU institutions and the local actions on the islands.

Representatives from the institutions will present their particular role in creating the enabling framework for the decarbonisation of EU Islands. Furthermore, local actions will be presented and discussed online with inspirations starting from the host islands and gradually broadened to all parts of the EU island community.

The  European  Islands  Facility  NESOI facilitates the decentralization of energy systems which contributes to EU policy in achieving 2030 climate targets. To reach NESOI’s objectives a survey on European islands was conducted to understand and identify islands’ energy challenges, projects readiness, and assistance requirements to finetune NESOI’s Technical Assistance solutions. 

Europe has set ambitious targets to increase energy efficiency, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and raise the share of renewable energy. Nonetheless, the scenery of the South-Eastern European region with multiple changing geopolitical and social conditions, poses serious questions, challenges, and opportunities for countries, industries, professionals, and academics.
