eclareon: There is a deep need to consider the socio-ecological effects of renewable deployment
eclareon developed a ten-step checklist commissioned by CAN Europe in October 2023 that can be a guide for governments, local authorities and developers of crucial considerations they need to consider when accelerating wind and solar development. The checklist underlines the need for early and just public engagement, supporting democratic energy cooperatives, ensuring local staffing, deploying Geographic Information System (GIS), prioritizing brownfield over greenfield development, while maximising synergies with nature protection and biodiversity increases. These steps will help build public support for local renewable energy projects, helping reduce the likelihood of objections and make the permitting process much smoother and quicker; thereby, maintaining or accelerating the energy transition’s momentum. The checklist elaborated by eclareon forms a key part of the briefing paper called Guidelines to Faster and Fairer Permitting for Europe’s Renewable Energy Transition, which was published by CAN Europe in mid-October 2023.

Into new markets for renewable energies and green hydrogen!
On behalf of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Protection in Germany, eclareon will continue to advise and support the “energy solutions - made in Germany” offers to German companies in the renewable energy sector in the fields of production and green hydrogen in 2024. The eclareon team is looking forward to the realisation of numerous exciting events and delegation trips and to working with various implementation partners of the German government. Interested German companies can find out more about the current offers at You can register for the events and trips organised by eclareon in November and December 2023 here (in German only). We will publish the new offers for 2024 for German companies as soon as possible. For further information, please contact Kai Unger,

RES Simplify project successfully completed
In the period of September 2020 until mid-2023, eclareon, together with Oeko-Institute, WindEurope and SolarPower Europe, were implementing a project for DG ENER named “Technical support for RES policy development and implementation – Simplification of permission and administrative procedures for RES installations”, abbreviated and known as RES Simplify. The project was officially brought to an end in May 2023. The project aim was to facilitate and accelerate administrative and permit-granting procedures of renewable energy projects across EU Member States. Given this, the project consortium scrutinised such procedures across the EU. These were subsequently evaluated based on the developed performance indicators. The main results together with measures identified as good practices were further examined and disseminated through the series of 52 stakeholder engagement activities. The events included sectoral surveys, virtual workshops, national events, bilateral meetings, and presentations in public events, among others. On top of that, the partners monitored the easing of permit-granting procedures in line with the obligation for the transposition of Arts. 15-17 of the Renewable Energy Directive (RED II). Additional measures going beyond the RED II (e.g., overriding public interest principle, identification of suitable areas, positive silence for RE projects) were also further discussed. Based on the aforementioned deliverables, the partners developed recommendations and identified best practices for RES admission procedures. Last but not least, an outline for the optimised processes and supporting IT infrastructure that are compliant with RED II was prepared. The RES Simplify Final Report (in English), which includes all the details, can be found here.
