The European Commission, DG XII, has published project synopses of the preparatory action (APAS) on renewable energies, implemented in 1994 as a bridging exercise between the Third and Fourth Framework Programmes.

A call for proposals was published on 15 March 1994, under this preparatory action, with a budget of ECU 25 million. A total of 71 projects, selected from 340 proposals, were launched in December 1994.

A major feature of the action was the close collaboration between the projects in each area and the overall coordination of the programme. The projects supported covered five major topics:

- Integration of renewable energies:
. European-wide integration (17 projects);
. Local and regional integration (12);

- Renewable energies for the Mediterranean (12);

- The development of bio-electricity (12);

- Urban planning maximizing the use of renewable energies (11);

- Photovoltaic electricity generation in cooperation between Europe and developing countries (7).

The book contains summaries of each of the projects supported under the action, including details of the participants and the coordinators from whom further information on the project's activities may be obtained.
