The Clean Energy for EU Islands Secretariat has launched a call for expression of interest by islands wishing to receive support on preparing their clean energy transition.
What is the call about?
In a first phase, this support will be to help the community write an Energy Transition Agenda for their island. An Energy Transition outlines the island community’s vision for the future of its energy system, concrete objectives and milestones, and what steps the island intends to take to realize them.
Islands can apply for two levels of support:
1. Co-Authoring (up to 6 Pilot Islands)
If an island community is selected as a Pilot Island, the Secretariat will co-author the transition agenda with the community. In practice, this includes the provision of a draft outline, an initial planning call to discuss collaboration, follow-up and co-authorship until the finalisation of the agenda.
2. Reviewing & Advising (up to 20 islands)
The Secretariat will make available materials to the island community to help them write their transition, and review and advise on the agenda along the way (or connect the community with relevant experts).
How can islands apply?
The application form, further information materials and a Q&A are available here. The deadline for applications is 15 January 2019.
If anything is unclear, make sure to check out the Q&A, or contact the Secretariat at firstname.lastname@example.org
