Discover the 20 projects selected by the Clean energy for EU islands secretariat in response to their second call for technical assistance to EU islands’ energy transition projects.
The Clean energy for EU islands secretariat has evaluated applications received in response to the second call for technical assistance to EU islands’ energy transition projects. A total of 28 applications from all over the EU were received.
Islands were asked to fill out a form and choose the type of support required (Explore, Shape, Act) and pick one of the ten support packages offered. The Clean energy for EU islands secretariat organised a webinar on 03 March 2022 providing details of the application process and on lessons learned from the first call for technical assistance.
To decide on the selected projects, the secretariat evaluated criteria such as project description, impact and replicability, organisational structure, stakeholder engagement, and the alignment with the secretariat’s objectives.
See below the 20 projects that will receive technical assistance. In addition, the project on the Clean Energy Transition Agenda (CETA) for the Croatian Municipality of Sali (which includes Dugi Otok, Zverinac, and Lavdara), in the first round for technical assistance, will be developed during this second round instead,following a number of technical delays.
