Nearly EUR 100 million for funding Clean Energy Transition projects

The European Climate, Infrastructure and Environment Executive Agency has launched a new Call for Proposals for the LIFE Clean Energy Transition (CET) sub-programme. Granting a total budget of nearly EUR 100 million, the CET sub-programme will provide funding for projects in the field of Clean Energy Transition. The aim is to facilitate the transition towards a climate-neutral and resilient economy.

Innovators and researchers can submit their projects ideas on 18 dedicated topics, including:

  • build the policy framework for the Clean Energy Transition at local, regional and national level
  • accelerate the market for the Clean Energy Transition with the roll-out of technology, digitalisation, new services and business models and enhancing related professional skills
  • attract private finance for sustainable energy investments and support the development of local and regional clean energy investment projects
  • involve and empower citizens in the Clean Energy Transition.

The deadline to submit the proposal is 16 November 2022, 17:00 Brussels time. The winning projects will be supported with a 95% co-funding rate.

About the LIFE Clean Energy Transition sub-programme

Framed in the European Commission’s LIFE funding programme for the environment and climate action, the Clean Energy Transition supports innovative projects in advancing the transition towards a more energy efficient and renewable energy-based economy. Particularly, it addresses small and medium-sized stakeholders, local and regional public authorities, as well as non-profit organisations. The final goal is to support the delivery of EU policies in the field of sustainable energy, in particular, the European Green Deal, the Energy Union (2030 energy and climate targets) and the European Union’s 2050 long-term decarbonisation strategy.
