Clean energy campaign
This site is dedicated to the use of renewable energy sources. It's part of the European Commission's campaign, 'Sustainable Energy Europe 2005-2008'. The campaign seeks to raise public awareness and spur continued development, and market expansion of renewable energy resources.

The campaign involves organistions, government agencies, institutions and private companies and aims at public- active participation. For that, the website under review has a section, 'Citizen Energy Days'. It is designed to help European citizens play their part in changing the continent's energy landscape. It contains information and resources pertaining to efficient and intelligent energy use. There are energy saving tips and an external link, the intelligent energy link, to offer direct access to other sites that provide information on sustainable energy options. To increase public participation, the campaign organises 'energy days' or 'energy weeks' at the local, regional or national level, and aims to involve key public actors in activities related to use of renewable energy sources. Another database helps one find out details of organisations and companies involved in the campaign.

The campaign counts on the media to play an important role in raising public awareness. Special media desk alerts journalists to the latest information and provides access to interviews with the main actors of key campaign events.
