Building on the previous programme, the overall objective of the new EU4Energy Phase II is to foster the low carbon and clean energy transition in countries of the Eastern Partnership.
Building upon the common strategic objective and previous lessons learnt, this can be translated into the following more specific objectives:
- to strengthen energy legislative and regulatory frameworks as well as evidence-based energy policy design capabilities;
- to foster the implementation of a conducive environment for sustainable energy investments and prioritisation of infrastructure projects, and, where appropriate, an increase in regional market integration/intra-regional trade.
The programme is implemented by the Energy Community Secretariat (EnCS), the International Energy Agency (IEA) and the Council of European Energy Regulators (CEER).
CEER, as implementing partner aims at assisting Armenia and Azerbaijan to further develop strategic thinking, planning and adoption of EU Best Practices, supporting CEPA implementation in Armenia and promoting regional cooperation, as well as the visibility of the EU4Energy programme’s action and impact.
