REMOTE - Renewable Energy Training and Demonstration

Renewable Energy Training and Demonstration Network for Remote Communities


REMOTE – Renewable Energy Training and Demonstration Network for Remote Communities in the NPP Area - is a project funded under the Northern Periphery Programme (NPP), and has partners in Scotland (Inverness College, UHI), Ireland (Ryan Institute, NUI Galway), Sweden (Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, SLU), Norway (County Governor of Hordaland) and Finland (Joensuu Science Park Ltd., Karelia University of Applied Sciences and Finnish Forest Research Institute, Metla). They are developing products and services to increase and support local capacities within renewable energy solutions across northern Europe.

The REMOTE project aims to increase and support local capacities in renewable energy solutions across the NPP area. By building on the results of NPP Renewable Energy Cluster projects and networks, the REMOTE will establish an unique International Network of Best Practise Demonstration Sites, and integrate it  to a Training for Trainers Service. The sustaining network will support the capacity development of remote communities by providing technology demonstrations, business model examples, training, peer-to-peer support, and community mentoring. Furthermore, in REMOTE, a connection to renewable energy tourism in northern periphery region will be established and promoted. The project will establish a service “NPP Renewable Energy Tours”. This will include renewable energy demonstrations, training and innovative mobile guide applications for smart phones. The unique transnational service menu will have options for industry, decision-makers, community groups etc.
Overall, REMOTE will strenghten and solidify the contacts of peripheral communities; it will support the long-term sustainability of the NPP products and services promoted within earlier NPP projects and REMOTE.
