The Clean energy for EU islands Secretariat is launching its second Call for Assistance this 23 February, calling EU islands to apply for technical support for their projects. Twenty spots are open.
The Clean energy for EU islands secretariat continues to offer support to European islands to further advance in their clean energy transition. From formulating strategic energy transition plans to grid integration studies, regulatory analysis, or help finding financing for concrete projects: this technical support aims to bring solutions to all European islands tailored to whichever phase of the transition they are in.
All the details of the application process, eligibility, and evaluation are included in our Guide for Applicants. Islands are first invited to use a self-assessment tool to refine the type of support they need and then apply by filling out an online form that includes a description of the requested support services, the expected impact of the project and the stakeholder team that takes responsibility.
The first call was launched in March 2021, and we are proud for having supported twenty islands in advancing their clean energy transition. The secretariat is now launching a second Call for Technical Assistance this February, with twenty more spots available. Islands are first invited to use a self-assessment tool to refine the type of support they need and then apply by filling out an online form that includes a description of the requested support services, the expected impact of the project and the stakeholder team that takes responsibility. A webinar will be organised on 3 March at 11h CET to present relevant examples from the first call and the details of the second call.
Islands are welcome to submit questions regarding the provided support and the application process to email@example.com.

The deadline for submitting applications for this second call is 23 March 2022 at 23:59 CET.
In addition, the Secretariat’s regional partners will be available throughout the application process to explain the application process to the island stakeholders in their local language.
Join this webinar on 3rd of March from 11 to 12 CET to learn how the Clean energy for EU islands secretariat provides technical support to help island communities advance in their energy transition. The webinar will start with inspiring, concrete results from the first round of technical assistance, for example: road transport electrification in Greek islands, funding and financing seminars tailored to energy projects, stakeholder inclusion, and modelling of energy systems to analyse how storage and wind and solar may affect the island’s electricity grid.
In the second part of the webinar, we will provide all the details of the new call, which will be open from 21 February until 21 March 2022. The procedure will be similar to the first call, but we will include new ‘bundles’ for support -based on experience from the first call and on the examples presented in the first part. Join us to hear all the details and pose any questions that could help your application!
