The EU Climate and Energy Package is considered key to an energy efficient and low-carbon Europe. The three overall objectives have become generally known as the 20-20-20 targets: a 20% cut in emissions of greenhouse gases by 2020, compared with 1990 levels; a 20% increase in the share of renewables; and a 20% cut in energy consumption.

EnercitEE sought to implement the EU targets on energy efficiency practically. The project, which was carried out under the EU programme INTERREG IVC, built upon experiences and existing networks from the forerunner project enercy’regio.

The exchange of experience was an essential part of this mini-programme: the partners compiled policy instruments, good practices, case studies and organised training sessions and component seminars.


The Interregional Cooperation Programme INTERREG IVC, financed by the European Union’s Regional Development Fund, helps Regions of Europe work together to share experience and good practice in the areas of innovation, the knowledge economy, the environment and risk prevention.

EUR 302 million is available for project funding but, more than that, a wealth of knowledge and potential solutions are also on hand for regional policy-makers.
