SHV Energy supports rural communities

Did you know that over 50% of European citizens live in rural areas? They occupy over 90% of Europe’s territory and contribute 43% of Europe’s gross value. And yet, despite their importance, rural communities are rarely considered by politicians and regulators when writing energy policy. In 2009, SHV Energy launched the Future of Rural Energy in Europe (FREE) initiative. This initiative gives a voice to all those who believe that rural energy needs are important issues both for those who live in the countryside and for European society as a whole.
