The overall objectives of SUPPORT_ERS are to strengthen the capacities in RES related administrations particularly in the new EU member states and the candidate countries in order to increase the impact of support schemes and to fulfil future expectations, especially for the heat market.
The specific aims of the action can be summarised as follows:
to increase awareness of regional actors for the benefits of RES-E and RES-H and to optimise the implementation of support schemes on regional level.
SUPPORT_ERS contributes directly to strengthening the capacities of public institutions in the field of promotion RES, particularly in the new member states and the candidate countries. The project increases the awareness and understanding concerning support instruments and enables administrations and authorities to adopt and implement support instruments for RES.
Within the project the partners, who are representatives from RES related national administrations and authorities:
Regional training seminars are implemented and trainees such as representatives of RES related administrations and authorities, local politicians, decision makers and other stakeholders attend each regional training seminar.
The developed training modules are made available to administrations and authorities in the partner countries.
SUPPORT_ERS project consortium provides and exchanges specific know how and experiences about support instruments and administrative procedures for RES in the participant countries.
Until now the RES-H market and related support instruments in the new member states and candidate countries are not well documented. A report on support instruments for RES-H is elaborated as well as market reviews with detailed surveys on the market potential for RES-E and H technologies.
SUPPORT_ERS presents two reports on administrative aspects: one administrative assessment report and one report on good practices for strengthening administrative structures.
An international conference was organised and worked as media for presenting projects results, exchange of experiences and for discussion for the participants such as representatives from national and regional administrations, authorities, politicians and decision makers, international RES industry and associations, financial institutions and researchers.
SUPPORT_ERS develops two tools for supporting RES on the political level:
