SUMMARY OF EXPERIENCES WITH THE INVOLVEMENT OF CSOS IN V4 IN THE DECARBONISATION PROCESS

Projekt je zaměřen na zkoumání role nevládních organizací v procesu dekarbonizace uhelných regionů v zemích V4 (Česká republika, Maďarsko, Polsko, Slovensko). Cílem projektu je popsat nejlepší a nejhorší praxi jednotlivých procesů pro Srbsko, které čeká transformace jeho energetického mixu založeného z velké části na uhlí. Zkoumané země V4 mají mírně odlišný podíl uhlí ve svém energetickém mixu, přičemž největší je v Polsku a druhý největší v České republice, následuje Maďarsko a Slovensko. V jejich přístupu k dekarbonizaci existuje mnoho podobností i rozdílů, a poskytují tak různou škálu zkušeností.
