In support of the Fourth Framework Programme for research and technological development, the Community budget for 1994 provides the possibility for preparatory actions in the field of renewable energies. The European Commission has published a call for proposals in the context of the JOULE programme (1990-1994) to implement this budget line. The call concerns the following areas: - Integration of renewable energies in regions; - Water-desalination plants for the Mediterranean countries powered by renewable energies; - Development of bio-electricity; - Urban planning maximizing the use of renewable energies; - Photovoltaic electricity generation in cooperation between Europe and the developing countries. Proposals should be submitted by consortia of organizations from at least two EU Member States. Organizations from EFTA countries may participate in such consortia, although they will not be eligible for financial support from the Commission. Organizations from Eastern and Central European countries and from developing countries may be considered for support as sub-contractors to consortia. The budget which has been allocated for these studies is ECU 25 million.
