The ISLE-PACT project is committed to developing Local Sustainable Energy Action Plans and a pipeline of bankable projects with the aim of meeting or exceeding the EU sustainability target of reducing CO2 emissions by at least 20% by the year 2020. The project's duration is 34 months, 1 February 2010 – 30 November 2012.
The project's coordinator is Comhairle nan Eilean Siar - The Outer Hebrides of Scotland.
The project is co-financed by the European Commission, Directorate General for Energy.
Currently there are 12 participating groups of European Islands (over 50 islands) involved. Cooperation with more islands is welcome as the ISLE-PACT process has been conceived to include all European Islands.
The ISLE-PACT partner island authorities have made the commitment to signing the Pact of Islands and working together with the European Commission, energy experts and financial institutions, to identify bankable projects with the view to implementing sustainable energy actions in their island regions.
