Strong partnerships to connect urban demand & rural supply
NWE is one of the EU’s highest energy consuming regions. The share of renewable energy in the region’s production and consumption mix is low and there is a strong dependence on non-renewable energy sources.
RegEnergy aims to break up existing structures for increasing the use of renewable energy in NWE regions. Creating renewable energy demand–supply partnerships between urbanised and surrounding rural territories will lead to reducing greenhouse gas emissions. 9 projectpartners from 7 NWE countries, representing metropolitan regions, cities, rural communities, regional agencies, scientific institutions and renewable energy producers will develop strategies and models to illustrate how such partnerships can be built. In three strategic areas the missing regional links between demand and supply from renewables will be addressed: The institutional and administrative framework conditions (e.g. cooperation agreements) as well as the main infrastructure (e.g. biogas pipelines) that such partnerships require are as central as the question of required technologies (e.g. smart grids, storage capacities).
Pilot partnerships across Northwest-Europe will invest in
To sustain and widely spread the results RegEnergy partners will present best-practice and showcases to cooperating regions and will actively help them to develop appropriate RE demand-supply partnerships in their region.

This session compared the various green electricity offers, highlighting their benefits and the issues around which buyers should be made aware. It also explored the use of Contracts for Difference arrangements to support new renewable energy projects, along with a discussion of procurement arrangements.
From 15 – 17 September the 5th RegEnergy project meeting took place virtually in Plymouth England (due to the ongoing pandemic). More than 30 partners and friends of the project met this time to explore deep the issues of green electricity procurement, infrastructure problems (how do we connect solar farms?) and the creation and future of energy communities.
This seminar explored elements of the EU’s Clean Energy Package (CEP) and the initiatives set up as part of that, such as the Renewable Energy Directive and the Internal Electricity Market Directive, what they mean for the Smart Grid of the future, how prosumers can be at the heart of it as well as looking at developments in some EU jurisdictions to date.

From 28-30 April over 40 RegEnergy partners and interested parties met online - instead of in Yverdon-les-Bains (Switzerland) as planned - to discuss the management of microgrids, the role of local energy communities as well as the RED II and many more.
The first Interreg North-West Europe (NWE) impact event focused on the results achieved by the NWE projects funded so far, and how to further support their uptake and impact.
The “Zukunftsforum Energiewende” is Germany’s largest congress for decentralised energy system transformation players. Representatives from local and state politics, administration, business and science meet here to jointly set fresh impulses for energy system transformation and climate protection.
On 29 and 30 November the Dutch partner Waterstromen invited the RegEnergy project team to Arnhem and Doetinchem.
From 5 to 6 June 2019, 28 representatives from seven North-West European countries representing metropolitan regions, cities, rural communities, regional authorities, scientific intuitions and renewable energy producers met in Waterford, Ireland, to work on preliminary guidelines for the development of regional renewable energy partnerships.
The first meeting in Brussels concentrated on getting to know each other. Thus, the partners presented their activities and investments to each other in great detail. Moreover, they addressed the question of how EE partnerships can best be established.
