The REMOTE project will develop and implement support mechanisms based on existing best practise renewable energy solutions adapted for remote areas and to the scale of sparsely populated areas in the NPP regions. Thereby, REMOTE will promote rural development and support the capacity development of remote communities by providing technology demonstrations, business model examples, training, peer-to-peer support, and community mentoring.

REMOTE will also stimulate investments on new demonstration sites, encourage their inclusion to the network, and support technology and knowledge transfer activities. Furthermore, renewable energy tourism in northern periphery region will be developed and promoted and thereby support tourism activities supported by long-lasting open-sources services and products. The unique transnational service menu of REMOTE will have options for industry, decision-makers, community groups etc.

REMOTE will strenghten and solidify the contacts of peripheral communities thereby promoting renewable energy sources in the NPP region and supporting local, regional, national and EU policies regarding sustainable energy production. In this way, REMOTE will raise the awareness of the benefits of renewable energy sources and ensure energy security in the Northern Periphery area.
