The European Energy Programme for Recovery (EEPR) was established in 2009 to address both Europe's economic crisis and European energy policy objectives. Almost €4 billion were assigned to co-finance EU energy projects that would boost the economic recovery, increase the security of energy supply and contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. The three sectors meeting these conditions were gas and electricity infrastructure, offshore wind energy and carbon capture and storage projects.
59 energy projects received funding: 44 gas and electricity infrastructure projects, 9 offshore wind projects and 6 carbon capture and storage projects.
