The LIFE Clean Energy Transition sub-programme supports the transition towards an energy-efficient, renewable energy-based, climate-neutral and -resilient economy. It provides funding for coordination and support actions that have high EU added-value, which are targeted at breaking market barriers that hamper the socio-economic transition to sustainable energy. Projects will typically engage multiple small and medium-sized stakeholders, multiple actors including local and regional public authorities and non-profit organisations, as well as consumers. Projects will be in five areas of intervention: • Building a national, regional and local policy framework supporting the clean energy transition. • Accelerating technology roll-out, digitalisation, new services and business models and the enhancement of professional skills relating to this market area. • Attracting private finance for sustainable energy. • Supporting the development of local and regional investment project. • Involving and empowering citizens in the clean energy transition.
