Sustainable Energy Project Support, SEPS, aims to support innovative energy projects that are environmentally, economically and socially sound. SEPS defines the term “project” in a broad sense.

● Advocacy and awareness-raising activities: defining strategies for the effective advocacy of critical topics; creating awareness for specific technologies and/or challenges relating to sustainable energy; implementing and supporting concepts for motivating the local population
