Call for Proposals

European Programme Intelligent Energy-Europe

The call for proposals CIP-IEE-2013 has been published, in the framework of the European Programme “Intelligent Energy-Europe”, by the European Commission.

The Programme contributes to the EU Energy 2020 Strategy and facilitates the implementation of the Directive on energy efficiency and of the Directive on the promotion of the use of energy from renewable sources. In operational terms the Intelligent Energy - Europe Programme aims to

  • provide the elements necessary for the improvement of sustainability, the development of the potential of cities and regions, as well as for the preparation of the legislative measures needed to attain the related strategic objectives; develop the means and instruments to follow up, monitor and evaluate the impact of the measures adopted by the European Union and its Member States in the fields addressed by that programme;
  • boost investment across Member States in new and  best performing technologies in the fields of energy efficiency, renewable energy sources and energy diversification, including in transport, by bridging the gap between the successful demonstration of innovative technologies and their effective, broad market uptake in order to attain leverage of public- and private-sector investment, promote key strategic technologies, bring down costs, increase market experience and contribute to reducing the financial risks and other perceived risks and barriers that hinder this type of investment;
  • remove the non-technological barriers to efficient  and intelligent patterns of energy production and consumption by promoting institutional capacity-building at, inter alia, local and regional level, by raising awareness, notably through the educational system, by encouraging exchanges of experience and know-how among the main players concerned, business and citizens in general and by stimulating the spread of best practices and best available technologies, notably by means of their promotion at EU level.


The objectives of the current call for proposals CIP-IEE-2013 are:

  • to  contribute to secure, sustainable and competitively priced energy for Europe, by providing for action:
  • to foster energy efficiency and the rational use of energy resources;
  • to promote new and renewable energy sources and to support energy diversification;
  • to promote energy efficiency and the use of new and renewable energy sources in transport.


The current call for proposals of the European Programme “Intelligent Energy-Europe”,  includes the following priorities:

  • SAVE: Energy efficiency
  • ALTENER: New and renewable energy  resources
  • STEER: Energy in transport
  • BUILD UP Skills, the Sustainable Building Workforce Initiative - Training and Qualification in the field of energy efficiency and renewable energy


Eligible participants within this CIP-IEE-2013 call for proposal must be legal entities, whether public  or private, established in the territory of the EU Member States, Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Croatia, or the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia. 


The total budget available for this call within the “Intelligent Energy-Europe” Programme amounts to EUR 65 million. The European Commission, through the Executive Agency for Competitiveness and Innovation (EACI), plans to grant funds which are complementary to contributions made by the beneficiary, the national, regional or local authorities and/or other bodies. The sources of co-funding must be transparent and stated in such a way that they are clearly

identifiable and accountable. Accordingly, the amount granted will be up to 75% of the total eligible costs. 


The deadline for submitting proposals in the framework of the current call for proposals of the “Intelligent Energy-Europe” Programme is 8 May 2013.
