Short description of the overall project

This programme is based on the long running INOGATE Programme and the lessons learnt from it. The objective of the overall proposed action is to support the sound elaboration and implementation of evidence-based, medium to long term energy policies in partner countries, based on improved use of statistics and sharing of best practice and EU experience.

Although the EU4Energy Programme will be implemented as one Action, it comprises five distinct components all of which will contribute to better policy making and implementation.

  • Component 1: focuses on enhanced energy data management
  • Component 2: is aimed at providing greater energy policy analysis and recommendations
  • Component 3: seeks to generate an improved energy legislative and regulatory framework and implemented policy recommendations as well as to promote investments in key energy infrastructure strategic projects
  • Component 4: is intended to provide easier access to energy information for policy-makers and relevant stakeholders
  • Component 5: is expected to ensure better communication between the EU and partner countries on regional and bilateral cooperation in the field of energy.
