Legal References:Decision No 1230/2003/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 26 June 2003 adopting a multiannual programme for action in the field of energy:
Funding:Eur 250 million for the period 2003-2006

On 26 June 2003, the European Parliament and Council adopted the multiannual programme "Intelligent Energy - Europe" (2003-2006) to formally continue funding for projects in energy efficiency (SAVE) and renewable energy (ALTENER), and to initiate two new programmes on energy for transport (STEER) and international policy cooperation (Coopener). The Intelligent Energy - Europe programme is the EUs tool for funding action in these areas to move towards a more energy intelligent Europe. While 90% of the first programmes budget (2003-06) directly financed projects, the programme supported four additional types of activities, usually covering up to 50% of the costs: • European projects, approximately 90% of the total financial support. • European events (e.g. conferences). • Start-ups of local/regional energy agencies. • Concerted action with participating countries. The final call for proposals for the first programme (2003-06) finished in May 2006, leading to the allocation of approximately Eur 50 million to European organisations to support approximately 350 supports. Organisations from the EU member and some other states were eligible to receive funding under the programme. The second Intelligent Energy Europe programme started in early 2007 as part of a broader EU programme called Competitiveness and Innovation.
