The Clean energy for EU islands secretariat is currently evaluating the applications after the latest Call for technical Assistance, calling EU islands to apply for technical support for their projects. A total number of 35 valid applications from all over Europe have reached us. The majority of applications came from Greek islands, followed by Italian islands.
The Clean energy for EU islands secretariat continues to offer support to European islands to further advance in their clean energy transition. From formulating strategic energy transition plans to grid integration studies, regulatory analysis, or help finding financing for concrete projects. The next Call for technical Assistance will be launched in February 2022.
Islands were asked to fill out a Self-assessment to define the support category. The Clean energy for EU islands secretariat offered a webinar on April 20 on the details of the application process to help islands clarify the requirements and answer their questions.
Application had to be submitted until May 4. In the upcoming weeks, a selection will be made according to the score following defined eligibility and assessment criteria.
The projects that were chosen in this process will be announced during the Clean energy for EU islands forum, which will take place on May 20 and 21.
