The aim of the e-library is to bring together in one place a range of tools and guidebooks on energy efficiency, renewable energy applications and sustainable mobility. It includes items funded under the Intelligent Energy-Europe (IEE) programme in collaboration with USA energy regulatory bodies and a selection of instruments picked from over 2,500 EU funded projects (under Altener and Save, US energy programs, CIVITAS, Structural and regional funds, LIFE, RTD 2002-2006 and Phare). In addition, nationally,regionally and international funded tools and guidebooks have been included. By providing a thematic collection and consolidation of existing material in selected programme areas, the e-library helps to eliminate intensive initial project phases and removes the need to redevelop certain tools and guidebooks. It also ensures that information remains accessible beyond the legal duration of project contracts.Please note that the library was developed during the course of 2014 and last updated in 2015. For IEE projects related material you can also check on the IEE Projects Database.
