Supporting the implementation of sustainable energy policies and fostering co-operative energy sector development

EU4Energy is a collaboration between the IEA, the European Union, Focus Countries and other implementing parties, designed to support the aspirations of Focus Countries to implement sustainable energy policies and foster co-operative energy sector development at the regional level. The EU4Energy programme is funded by European Union.

The first Phase of the Programme ran from July 2016 through June 2022, and focused on the countries of the Eastern Partnership (EaP) and Central Asia: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine and Uzbekista​n. EU4Energy builds on the success of the long running INOGATE Programme and follows objectives for regional cooperation agreed between the EU and the beneficiary countries. 

The EU renewed the EU4Energy Programme for a second phase, which began on 1 July 2021 and will run until 30 June 2025. EU4Energy Phase II focuses solely on the six countries of the EU’s Eastern Partnership: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, the Republic of Moldova, and Ukraine.

The Programme's aim is to improve energy data capabilities and enhance data collection and monitoring of the beneficiary countries. It also assists them in evidence-based energy policy design. The IEA is responsible for four components of the Programme, looking at energy data management and use, sustainable energy, energy security, and communication and visibility.

In addition, the EU4Energy Programme provides technical assistance on legislative and regulatory frameworks and on key energy infrastructure investments to the countries of the Eastern Partnership, via the Energy Community Secretariat and the Council of European Energy Regulators (CEER).

Home heating technology solutions

When it comes to home heating, consumers have a diverse array of options, from traditional systems that run on fossil fuels to cutting-edge sustainable solutions. This overview of technologies available globally allows for a closer examination of their individual characteristics and their potential role in achieving secure, sustainable heating for households.
