The project was directed to comparative analysis of many indicators in energy-economy field and energy policy instruments in Central and East European countries former candidate to join European Union. The main scientific goals of this project were as follows:

1) development and implementation of methods for analysis of effectiveness of political concepts related with incentives to increase energy efficiency and the use of renewable energy sources,

2) drawing up of strategies to analyse the conditions of transformation from centrally planned economy to a free market economy,

3) analysis and assessment of political concepts directed to increase energy efficiency and the use of renewable energy sources,

4) a prospective analysis of energy policy concepts to increase energy efficiency and the use of renewable energy sources,

5) organisation of an informational conference aimed at the governments of the EU candidate countries involved and concerned with the most successful energy policy concepts to increase the energy efficiency and to employ renewable energy sources.
