Baltic Energy Areas – A Planning Perspective



Project is supported by Interreg Baltic Sea Region programme.


Project budget: 2 700 000 € (incl 2 110 000 € ERDF)
TREA budget: 239 00 € (incl 203 150 € ERDF)

Project duration: 2016−2019

Project aims:
BEA-APP brings together two perspectives: spatial planning as well as regional energy policy. The project aims at increasing the capacity of regional and renewable energy planning actors by:
– Providing adjusted spatial planning instruments targeting renewable energy development;
– Developing innovative stakeholder involvement methods and financing systems to increase social acceptance through local ownership;
– Applying the developed measures to pilot cases, studying the features of suitable renewable energy production sites and, thereby, setting the scene for concrete projects.

BEA-APP is a flagship project under the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region (EUSBSR).

Project partners: Altogether 11 regional- and local-level public authorities, regional energy agencies and research institutions from eight countries around the Baltic Sea.
