The Commission is in the process of updating some of the content on this website in light of the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union. If the site contains content that does not yet reflect the withdrawal of the United Kingdom, it is unintentional and will be addressed.

This report, released by CEE Bankwatch Network and Friends of the Earth Europe, shows that EU billions intended to revamp the carbon-intensive, inefficient energy systems of Central and Eastern Europe (CEE) are being misspent. In nine CEE countries only 7 per cent of the 178 billion euros in European Regional Development and Cohesion Funds will be invested into renewables, energy efficiency and SMART grids. At the same time the integration of climate considerations into all plans and projects – as required under EU law – remains superficial.
