Intelligent Energy Europe

Logo IEE (hoch)The Intelligent Energy – Europe programme is run by the Executive Agency for Competitiveness and Innovation (EACI) on behalf of the European Commission, and seeks to bridge the gap between EU policies and how they impact on the ground. 

By improving energy efficiency and encouraging the wider uptake of new and renewable energies, the IEE programme aims to boost actions which will help achieve the EU’s targets, including measures to:

  • foster energy efficiency and the rational use of energy resources
  • promote new and renewable energy sources and to support the diversifi cation of energy sources
  • promote energy effi ciency and the use of new and renewable energy sources in transport such as biofuels.

The 2007-2013 IEE programme forms part of the EU’s Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programme (CIP). Its global budget of € 730 million is used to support European projects under annual calls for project proposals. Funding covers up to 75 % of the eligible project costs.

In mid-2008, the EACI managed more than 400 IEE projects and the establishment of 60 new local or regional energy agencies has been supported by the programme. IEE-funded initiatives also include the ManagEnergy Initiative and the Sustainable Energy Europe Campaign.
