Intelligent Energy-Europe Programme (2007-13)

Last updated: 24 August 2021
The second Intelligent Energy Europe (IEE) programme began in early 2007 and runs till 2013. It is one of the European Competitiveness and Innovation Framework Programmes (CIP) three sub-programmes. The IEE programme funds projects aimed at: Capacity building; building and spreading of know-how, skills and methods; exchanges of experience; development of market and intelligence; policy input; awareness raising and information provision; and education and training. The IEE programme does not fund "Hardware" type investments, demonstration projects, or technical research & development projects on energy efficiency and renewables. Projects are divided into five subjects: Renewable energy, energy efficiency, transport, developing countries, and horizontal, cross-cutting projects (financing, monitoring, education, and sustainable communities). The 2008 call for proposals is currently underway. Approximately EUR 45 million is available to fund projects, supporting up to 75% of eligible costs as opposed to the 50% provided in previous years. Funding for projects lasts a maximum of three years, generally with a budget of between EUR 0.5 to EUR 2.5 million. The project also funds local/regional energy agencies, for a maximum funding period of 3.5 years.
