Project activities: In the project, 11 partners from eight countries around the Baltic Sea cooperate to support the transition towards low-carbon energy systems.
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 results: one of the project outputs in Estonia is the reconstruction project for Rõuge village cultural centre: The reconstruction project of Rõuge village hall
