TREE: Transfer Renewable Energy & Efficiency

As of: November 2020

This project aimed to transfer knowledge in the fields of renewable energies and energy efficiency to political and administrative decision-makers as well as engineers from developing countries and emerging economies. This put the actors in a position to promote the dissemination of these technologies in their home countries, thus reducing CO2 emissions. They took part in seminars in Germany and other selected countries. In addition, the project promoted networking among participants through events and an online platform.
