    Support to the clean energy transition of EU islands: A few days left to apply!

    The Clean Energy for EU Islands' call for expression of interest is still open until 15 January 2019.

    The Clean Energy for EU Islands Secretariat will support island communities wishing to embark on the clean energy transition.

    In a first phase, this support will be to help up to 26 communities write an island-wide Clean Energy Transition Agenda for their island. A Clean Energy Transition Agenda outlines the island community’s vision for the future of its energy system, objectives and milestones, and what steps the island intends to take to realize them. 

    Islands can apply for two levels of support

    1. Co-Authoring (up to 6 Pilot Islands)

    If an island community is selected as a Pilot Island, the Secretariat will co-author the island-wide transition agenda with the community. In practice, this includes the provision of a draft outline, an initial planning call to discuss collaboration, follow-up and co-authorship until the finalisation of the agenda.

    2. Reviewing & Advising (up to 20 islands)

    The Secretariat will make available materials to the island community to help them write their transition, and review and advise on the agenda along the way (or connect the community with relevant experts).

    For more information on the call and the application process, please visit the Clean Energy for EU Islands website.
