The objective of the Intelligent Energy - Europe

Programme is to contribute to secure, sustainable and competitively priced energy for Europe, by providing for action:

- to foster energy efficiency and the rational use of energy resources;
- to promote new and renewable energy sources and to support energy diversification;
- to promote energy efficiency and the use of new and renewable energy sources in transport.

The Programme in particular contributes to the Energy Policy for Europe, including the EU action plan for energy-efficiency and the Directive on the promotion of the use of energy from renewable sources.

In operational terms the Intelligent Energy - Europe Programme aims to:

a) provide the elements necessary for the improvement of sustainability, the development of the potential of cities and regions, as well as for the preparation of the legislative measures needed to attain the related strategic objectives; develop the means and instruments to follow up, monitor and evaluate the impact of the measures adopted by the EU and its Member States in the fields addressed by the Programme;
b) boost investment across Member States in new and best performing technologies in the fields of energy efficiency, renewable energy sources and energy diversification, including in transport, by bridging the gap between the successful demonstration of innovative technologies and their effective, broad market uptake in order to attain leverage of public and private sector investment, promote key strategic technologies, bring down costs, increase market experience and contribute to reducing the financial risks and other perceived risks and barriers that hinder this type of investment;
c) remove the non-technological barriers to efficient and intelligent patterns of energy production and consumption by promoting institutional capacity building at, inter alia, local and regional level, by raising awareness, notably through the educational system, by encouraging exchanges of experience and know-how among the main players concerned, business and citizens in general and by stimulating the spread of best practices and best available technologies, notably by means of their promotion at EU level.

Intelligent Energy - Europe covers action in the following fields:

Energy efficiency and rational use of resources (SAVE), including:
- improving energy efficiency and the rational use of energy, in particular in the building and industry sectors;
- supporting the preparation and application of legislative measures.

New and renewable energy resources (ALTENER), including:
- promoting new and renewable energy sources for centralised and decentralised production of electricity, heat and cooling, and biofuels, thus supporting the diversification of energy sources;
- integrating new and renewable energy sources into the local environment and the energy systems;
- supporting the preparation and application of legislative measures.

Energy in transport (STEER) to promote energy efficiency and the use of new and renewable energies sources in transport, including
- supporting initiatives relating to all energy aspects of transport and the diversification of fuels;
- promoting renewable fuels and energy efficiency in transport;
- supporting the preparation and application of legislative measures.

Integrated initiatives combining several of the aforementioned fields or relating to certain EU priorities.

They may include actions integrating energy efficiency and renewable energy sources in several sectors of the economy and/or combining various instruments, tools and actors within the same action or project.


Which organisations and countries are eligible?

All applicants must be legal entities, whether public or private, established in the territory of the EU Member States, Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Croatia.

A grant agreement with legal entities established in other countries will only be signed under the condition that the country has undertaken the necessary steps to join the IEE programme.

The IEE programme is also open to the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission (JRC). It is also open to international organisations – subject to the conditions set out above. They may, if necessary, receive funding. If one of the participants is the JRC or an international organisation, it is deemed to be established in a Member State or associated country other than any Member State or associated country in which another participant in the same action is established.

Local and regional energy agencies which were established with and are still beneficiaries of EU contributions from the IEE Programme are eligible to participate in IEE projects if they provide evidence that their resources are sufficient to cover the additional activities and that the latter do not overlap with the work programme of their existing IEE grant agreement or if the submission deadline for the call for proposals lies at least 24 months after the starting date of their activities, as specified in the relevant grant agreement.

Natural persons are not eligible.

How many applicants are required?

Applications must be submitted by a team of at least three independent legal entities, each established in a different eligible country.

Financial capacity of applicants

Applicants must show that they have the financial capacity and operational capability to complete the action to be supported. Unless they are a public body or an international organisation, they must complete a ‘Simplified Financial Statement’ Form and provide their annual financial statements comprised of the balance sheet, the profit and loss statement and any annexes to those for the last financial year for which the accounts have been closed (details available with the Guide for Proposers and Application Forms).

On the basis of these documents the EACI performs a financial viability check, upon which the EACI might ask for a financial guarantee in line with Article 182(1) of the rules implementing the Financial Regulation.

In accordance with Article 173(4) of the rules implementing the Financial Regulation, if the application concerns grants for action which exceed €500 000, an audit report produced by an approved external auditor must be submitted. That report must certify the accounts for the last financial year available. In the case of agreements with a number of beneficiaries this threshold will apply to each individual beneficiary.


The indicative total amount available for this call is about EUR 56 million. The European Commission, through the Executive Agency for Competitiveness and Innovation (EACI), plans to grant funds which are complementary to contributions made by the beneficiary, the national, regional or local authorities and/or other bodies. The sources of co-funding must be transparent and stated in such a way that they are clearly identifiable and accountable.

Accordingly, the amount granted will be up to 75% of the total eligible costs.

The EU contribution to reimburse eligible costs must not give rise to a profit. Contributions in kind are not eligible costs. One action may give rise to the award of only one grant from the EU budget to any one beneficiary. Action which receives financial support for the same purpose from other EU financial instruments will not receive funding from the IEE Programme.

Eligible costs can be incurred only after signature of the grant agreement by all the parties, save in exceptional cases, and under no circumstances before submission of the application for a grant.

The maximum duration of a project is 3 years.


Applications must be submitted using the on-line submission system and application forms indicated on the IEE programme website.

The closing date for submission is 24 June 2010, 17:00 (Brussels local time).

Applications submitted after the closing date and time will NOT be taken into consideration.


Closing date for submission of applications: 24 June 2010, 17:00 Brussels local time
Estimated date of completion of the evaluation: December 2010
Estimated date for the notification of applicants: from mid December 2010 onwards
Estimated date for signature of contracts from April 2011 onwards
