The EUEI PDF contributes to the creation of an enabling legal environment for sustainable energy development. Renewable energy and biomass, energy efficiency, energy access, climate change and sustainable energy in cities are the current thematic pillars of the EUEI PDF’s activities when providing policy advisory services to national and municipal governments or regional organisations.
The EUEI PDF has completed over 30 projects in the area of energy policy advisory services, which have included, among other activities:
- Conceptual support for drafting national energy policies, strategies and action plans such as energy efficiency policies, energy strategies and action plans, household energy access plans, and biomass energy strategies
- Assistance in the development of subsequent implementation plans, e.g. data collection support and development of energy indicators for designing appropriate implementation strategies, revision of draft implementation plans, etc.
Recognising the importance of regional strategies and tools in accelerating national efforts to adopt an appropriate energy strategy, the EUEI PDF works with countries and institutions at the regional level, including:
