The European Commission has set up the Executive Agency for Competitiveness & Innovation (EACI) to deliver European programmes in the field of energy, the environment, business support, multi-modal transport, communication and finance.


The Intelligent Energy – Europe (IEE) programme supports the use and dissemination and the Europe-wide exchange of related knowledge and know-how in the field of energy. Targeted funding is provided for projects which aim at

  • promoting energy efficiency and encouraging the rational use of energy sources,
  • increasing the use of new and renewable energy sources as well as encouraging energy diversification and
  • stimulating energy efficiency and renewables in the field of transport.


ManagEnergy is the technical support initiative of the IEE Programme which aims to assist actors from the public sector and their advisers working on energy efficiency and renewable energy at the local and regional level.
