In Europe, ADEME contributes to EU policies and programmes.
As part of its participation in the Club EnR, the European network of national energy efficiency and renewable energy agencies, ADEME supports the sharing of best practices and provides its expertise to assist in the implementation of directives and the assessment of European energy management policies.
Furthermore, ADEME acts as a National Contact Point for the energy and environment sections of the European framework programme, Horizon 2020. In this context, the agency is responsible for involving the research and innovation community in European programmes and providing support to French project owners (information, awareness raising, etc.). ADEME takes part in the European networks of National Contact Points for energy (C-ENERGY2020) and environment (NCPs-CaRE).
Finally, the agency participates in some of the European Commission's working groups.
