Renewable Energy Sources (RES) are unlimited, free and most have very low operating costs. Renewable energy production is also CO2 neutral, making it the energy form of choice for climate-conscious policymakers. Europe is striving to increase the share of renewable energies in its energy mix. The success of this strategy depends on the full mobilisation of regional and local governments. Renewable energy should therefore be a prime focus for regional development policies.

Renewable Energy (RE) refers to "any energy resource naturally generated over a short timescale that is derived directly from the Sun (such as thermal, photochemical and photoelectric), indirectly from the Sun (such as wind, hydropower and photosynthetic energy stored in biomass) or from other natural movements and mechanisms of the environment (such as geothermical and tidal energy)."
