RES-Chains puts the focus primarily on five different types of renewable energy sources: wind, solar power, hydro, biomass and biogas. The aim of this component is to establish knowledge and experience about existing use, potential for and applicability of RES-Chains. This means providing the hole picture of energy supply with renewables.

All participating regions studies the state of the art in their region, ten specific power plants per region, as well as regional and national policies and strategies dealing with renewables. An analysis of possibilities for RES-Chains is conducted. Knowledge is then gained and spread through regional networks and through trainings and seminars for the public, political decision makers and civil servants. The aim is to promote R&D in the field of renewables as well as have new local and regional action plans for renewables written and signed.
