The UP-RES (Urban Planners with Renewable Energy Skills) project's main focus was on organizing training for urban and regional planners. Our main target group were European planning professionals working in national, regional and municipal authorities but also in private consultation companies. In addition to the trainings, the partners collected information of 30 best practice cases in which renewable energy solutions had been integrated with urban planning. In addition to these best practices, we also modified some existing tools for urban planners and analysed planning guidelines.
