SUNFLOWER - Working towards sustainable energy communities throughout Europe

Description: The SUNFLOWER project resulted from the will of eight European partners to work toward sustainable development of the regions through development, promotion and investment in RES. The partnership between Universities, Local Authorities, Technological Parks, an association for the promotion of sustainability in the urban environment and a National Park Authority provided complementary knowledge and expertise to achieve the common goal of creating a ‘long and durable community energy vision’ and promote a better quality of life to communities. The aims of the Project were to promote, disseminate and implement good practice examples of RES projects particularly in those European regions characterized by a large RES potential but lacking in scale to be attractive to the industry, and to overcome existing barriers to increasing the RES market share through the development of STBParks. The main stakeholders shared learning, experiences and expectations concerning political commitment, environmental awareness and market stimulation. Training to assist with entrepreneurship and employment in the RES sector, research and innovation, raising awareness, providing education of RES in schools and communities, influencing political decision makers and stimulating increased generating capacity from RES are all integral to the Project and widely disseminated via a range of methods and media.
