The low-carbon priority aims at increasing the use of renewable energies and improving energy efficiency while exploiting the economic growth potential of the low-carbon sector. The projects funded under this priority will contribute to enhancing knowledge and skills with regard to efficient energy management of public infrastructures. They will develop and implement territorially based low-carbon strategies and support mobility in functional urban areas hence helping to tackle the challenges central Europe is facing in energy production and consumption.
Our third call for proposals will be launched on 21 September and stay open until 25 January 2018. Around 60 million EUR will become available for new transnational cooperation ideas. Around ten million EUR ERDF from this budget will be allocated to the project ideas that help to improve capacities for urban and regional development in low-carbon priority.
In low-carbon, specific objective 2.2 will remain fully open, encouraging transnational project ideas to improve:
Specific objective 2.1 will be targeted, encouraging transnational project ideas to exclusively improve:
Interreg CENTRAL EUROPE will offer around 60 million EUR ERDF for new transnational cooperation ideas as of 21 September 2017. The programme also seeks project ideas in low-carbon priority that will help to improve energy efficiency in public infrastructure or help to mitigate climate change through low-carbon energy planning strategies and policies.
Updated energy statistical datasheets of all EU countries have just been published by the European Commission. These datasheets cover the period 1990-2015 and make it possible to track how each country's energy usage and greenhouse gas emissions patterns have changed over time.

The funding programme CENTRAL EUROPE 2007-13 was our predecessor. More than 1.300 public institutions and private businesses closely
cooperated in 124 transnational projects for the benefit of our regions. Take a look at what Interreg achieved already back then:
