eseia envisions strong innovation regions which lead by example through building on the rich diversity of Europe and utilise international leadership to contribute to sustainable global change. eseia believes Europe will rely on regionally focused sustainable energy systems to drive a vibrant and innovative and sustainable society. In turn this will call for regions to be responsible for their environment, renewable resources and energy infrastructure and services and will require regional administrations to act as the institutions in charge of planning, selecting, funding and implementing energy solutions.
By ensuring the efficient use of renewable energy, regions will enhance their role in politics and society, grow their economies, and preserve their natural and cultural diversity. For regional success eseia believes that it is vital to improve the cooperation between science, industry and politics as research and innovation are key drivers of competitiveness, employment, sustainable growth and social progress. eseia therefore promotes the formation of clusters to bring together research and innovation addressing major challenges and fostering regional energy systems within the European Union.
