What is Structural Funds (SF) and Cohesion Funds (CF)?
How is it administrated?

SF 2007-2013
SF 2004-2006

Evaluation 2004-06
and Recommendations for 2007-13

The use of structural funds (SF) for renewable energy (RE) and energy efficiency (EE) is too low to give a substantial impact for sustainable development; but valuable specific projects have been funded with structural funds. This database gives an overview of some of these projects, as examples of the possibilities that exist within structural funds and as inspiration.

SF Projects by Resources
The Projects can be found according to resources in the column to the left.

SF Projects by Countries and Periods
In the period of 1990-2006, the Projects are collected by countries. For Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovakia and Spain more information about the country programs is summarized.

In the period of 2007-2013, concrete projects are being included gradually. For new CEE countries the country program is detailed (except for Latvia and Estonia).
