Topic of the practice
Good Practice Information
A well organized cluster should always act as the link between the government and the industry and possible investors. The objective of gathering stakeholders and creating such a cluster is the promotion and development of RES projects by informing the possible investors and the members of the cluster on the availability , usability and benefits of RES technologies. Moreover, the objective in gathering the stakeholders lays down in increasing awareness both to general public and possible investors. The ones involved are initially the public authorities by distributing information regarding the legislation about RES, subsidy schemes, and mainstream technologies. Moreover, public authorities are responsible for increasing the awareness of the general public thus eliminating the reluctant attitude towards RES technologies. Following the public authorities, the RES industry sector is also involved to market RES products and implement potential RES projects. Each stakeholder or association of stakeholders finances its actions through their own funds or in some cases with collaboration of public authorities or even the EU.
