Low Carbon Regions in the North Sea

The Project

Within the framework of the cluster project LOWCAP, findings and experiences from four projects of the Interreg IVB North-Sea region programme on CO2 reduction and increasing energy efficiency in the North Sea region were examined and evaluated. The results of the Interreg projects (Build with Care, CareNorth, North Sea Sustainable Energy Planning and Carbon Capture & Storage) supported the implementation of EU targets for CO2 reduction through innovative, practical initiatives at regional level. In the course of LOWCAP, the participants developed recommendations for action for policy-makers who should contribute to the implementation of these objectives in the North Sea.
