European Commission is launching the Smart Specialisation Platform on Energy (S3P-Energy) to develop low carbon solutions

 S3P-Energy will support regions and Member States in using Cohesion Policy funding more effectively for promoting sustainable energy. For 2014-2020, more than EUR 38 billion of Cohesion Policy funding will be invested in achieving the EU Energy Strategy  and boosting the shift towards a low-carbon economy in all sectors. This represents more than a doubling of funding compared to the previous period. 
 The platform, which has been set up by the Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC), will contribute to boosting economic growth in the regions by ensuring sustainable, competitive and secure energy supply.  Read more at https://ec.europa.eu/energy/en/news
