The RNP project also aims at supporting local and regional authorities to achieve a high rate of renewable deployment. More specifically, it will be done by examining the barriers and bottlenecks to RES development at the local and regional levels in the EU Member States (with a focus on Czech Republic, France, Poland, Slovakia, Spain and the Netherlands).
Further, by fuelling the debate amongst public authorities around successful local policies, cost-efficient technologies and replicable methods of implementing renewable energy measures. Thirdly, by examining the potential for improving national support policies targeting the local and regional levels. Finally, through the establishment of a feedback loop between the subnational and national authorities as well as the European Commission.
