priority 3: Climate-neutral Societies
The Programme supports actions for the decarbonisation of energy systems in the region in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The solutions shall increase energy efficiency in industrial production processes as well as in public and private building stock. The Programme also encourages actions to increase renewable energy production from locally available resources.
What is energy transition ?
The Programme supports actions that target the decarbonisation of energy systems in the region in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Increase energy efficiency and renewable use
The Programme encourages the development of solutions that increase energy efficiency in industrial production processes as well as in public and private building stock. The Programme also encourages actions that develop and test solutions to increase renewable energy production from locally available resources. In addition, actions may help with renewable energy distribution and integration into various sectors, like building, industry, district heating and cooling.
Mobilise industry and citizens
Actions may adapt and update policies and regulations as well as coordinate plans and the application of solutions across borders. Actions may mobilise industry and citizens to apply energy solutions for climate neutrality and plan wider deployment with other public or private funds.
What can I do in my project?
We believe our projects help implement several important strategies in our region, and, in particular, the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region and its policy areas Energy, Bioeconomy, and Spatial Planning.
Update policy for climate neutrality
Rethink policies and regulations and update national, regional or local energy plans for climate neutrality;
Test coordination of renewable energy across borders
Test coordination mechanisms across borders for development of renewable energy projects, considering spatial planning needs;
Combine power sources
Introduce solutions for localised energy grids, combining multiple power sources
Accelerate production of renewable energy
Accelerate the establishment of systems for producing, storing and using renewable energy, and in particular, renewable electricity from locally available resources, with application of innovative technologies;
Speed up the "renovation wave"
Address administrative, legal and financial barriers to speed up a ‘renovation wave’ of public and private buildings, incl. designing innovative financing schemes or combining energy efficiency measures with renewable energy application;
Integrate & interconnect energy systems
Strengthen integration of different energy systems and interconnect energy consumers from different sectors;
Design public support services
Design public support policies to encourage wider production, supply and storage of renewable energy;
Strenghten involvement of citizens
Pilot actions that strengthen the involvement of citizens and industry in decarbonising energy systems, including development and testing guidelines for energy districts and standards for green industry certification, as well as assessment of green-house gas emissions and their decrease in a coherent way across borders.

Four priorities & nine objectives
Four priorities for cooperation
Interreg Baltic Sea Region 2021-2027 creates opportunities for organisations to connect
as if there were no borders. With experience and EU funding, we help them cooperate and put their ideas
into practice. Jointly, we make the life of people around the Baltic Sea better.
The Programme is structured along with four priorities. They guide partners in achieving the most when cooperating across borders.
