The Clean Energy Transition sub-programme of LIFE is dedicated to facilitating the transition towards an energy-efficient, renewable energy-based, climate-neutral and resilient economy.

The LIFE CET call 2023 offers plenty of opportunities - whether you are working on the development of plans and strategies or you are preparing concrete investments into sustainable energy, the following call topics might be of interest for you:

LOCAL – Technical support to clean energy transition plans and strategies in municipalities and regions

OSS – Integrated services for clean energy transition in buildings and businesses

PDA – Project Development Assistance for sustainable energy investments

BETTERRENO – Energy Performance of Buildings - Creating the conditions to make renovation faster, deeper, smarter, service- and data-driven

This call brings an opportunity to address the Energy Performance of Buildings, creating the conditions to make building renovation faster, deeper, smarter, service- and data driven. This is the title of the topic “LIFE-2023-CET-BETTERRENO”, a unique opportunity to help implementing current and future EU building policies, including the Renovation Wave and the upcoming revision of the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive.

The topic is structured across 3 different scopes: facilitate large-scale deep renovation, regulatory and administrative frameworks and buildings energy data and services. It welcomes proposals that bring actors, markets, frameworks and innovative solutions together to increase the attractiveness of building performance up-grades and to reduce the administrative, logistic and financial burden that still goes along with (deep) retrofitting of buildings. The topic also aims to address the need for quality data to make verification and financing more robust and to help deploy services that valorise building energy efficiency and smartness.

Some key facts ahead:

  • Deadline of all LIFE CET call topics: 16 November 2023
  • Funding rate of 95%
  • Minimum number of beneficiaries varies across call topics
