ETU Initiative Flagship Cases | Results and lessons learnt
Get insights on how the flagship cases have boosted their energy transition in the past year⚡️
The ETU Initiative worked during the past year with nine municipalities in Spain, Italy, Croatia and Greece testing the ETU model to support their renewable energy projects. The nine Flagship Cases worked on three different elements of the renewable energy transition: energy communities, Sustainable Energy and Climate Action Plans (known as SECAPs), and energy efficiency and bioenergy. Learn more about their results and lessons learnt during the past year working with the Interreg MED Renewable Energy experts!
Deepen your knowledge about the outcomes and work done by the nine flagship cases and the five assessment cases in the booklet. The booklet also describes the mainstreaming experience sharing metrics and capitalisation impacts.
Sign the ETU Manifesto to become part of the movement!
The ETU Initiative is based on five principles that shape our Manifesto, including territorial equity and social innovation. Did you know that you can join the movement by signing the ETU Manifesto?

The renewable energy sector is an unquestionable part of the solution to climate change. But, the sector is not built for a circular economy. Check the Ellen MacArthur Foundation report to learn more about how to make the sector circular and sustainable.
Total electricity supply in the EU increased by 4.2% compared to 2020, with preliminary data indicating a return to fossil fuels as the leading source, after the renewable category surpassed fossil fuels for electricity generation in 2020. Check the latest data published by Eurostat.
In South Africa, cities are finally being acknowledged as essential in creating a more reliable electricity supply, and not only as resellers of nationally-supplied electricity. Read more about how small and medium-sized cities are best placed to lead the energy transition.
