Potential unfulfilled – EU funding and Cohesion policy can do more for sustainable climate and energy development in central and eastern Europe
Study | 3 March 2010
This new analysis from CEE Bankwatch Network and Friends of the Earth Europe points to some alarming shortcomings in how billions of EU funds earmarked for clean energy projects in the new member states are being deployed.
It also calls for big increases in the marginal allocations of the EU funds that the new member states have thus far seen fit to give to clean energy schemes, citing widespread evidence from the ground that building efficiency schemes are ready to take off if they become more affordable and if EU money is better targeted.
