The Energy Academy is among many things also a project organization.

This means that we apply for different programs in the EU system and in correspondingly framed programs. The projects must be relevant to the Academy’s overall work for a sustainable future and in relation to climate change. But also inrelation to the resulting effects, such as decentralized solutions for energy supply, job creation and innovation in the local community.


In other words, the projects contribute to strengthening the Academy’s position as an active partner that can deliver progress and development in society and, in that context, get funded the daily tasks. We provide advice and help with energy calculations and meeting set ups, we write reports and send applicat ions. It costs time and money. The projects help to justify and pay the staff and the operations needed to have a dynamic Energy Academy.
