An EU-funded project has developed an innovative substructure for wind turbines that dramatically cuts the cost of their installation in deep water. This could help harness wind energy further offshore.
Scientists are focusing on technologies for storing heat as a means of increasing the share of renewables in the energy mix. As part of this push, an EU-funded project is testing new materials that perform well at very high temperatures.
An EU-funded project has helped bioenergy SMEs in six EU countries to become more economically sustainable/profitable and more competitive on the market by supporting them with technical, funding and management guidance, as the EU seeks to meet its climate and energy goals.
Deserts and other sun-drenched regions are the ideal location for concentrated solar power plants, but where sunlight is abundant water tends to be scarce. EU-funded researchers are solving this conundrum by developing technologies to comprehensively reduce water consumption, enabling CSP plants to play an even bigger role in addressing the worlds energy and climate change challenges.
The European Investment Bank (EIB) has agreed in principle to provide EUR 350 million in financing to support Northvolt's development of Europe's first lithium-ion battery cell gigafactory. The factory in Sweden will help reduce the EU's dependence on oil and imported batteries.
EU-funded researchers planted, harvested, processed and analysed the life cycle of woody crops to establish how efficient and environmentally friendly they are as a source of fuel for electricity and heat.
An EU-funded project has developed nine innovative products to help integrate homes and businesses into a smart European electricity grid. The aim is to make green energy smarter, easier and cheaper to use at home and work - good for the pocket, the planet and Europe's energy security.
An EU-funded project has developed more efficient ways to obtain high-quality, recyclable raw materials from bulky waste. The advances contribute to Europe's efforts to reduce landfilling, recover valuable raw materials for reuse by industry, and protect the environment.
Heat from the Earth is in plentiful supply - and innovation could help to reduce the cost and further improve the efficiency of technology for its extraction. An EU-funded project has set out to upgrade shallow geothermal systems and underground thermal storage. Part of the research is conducted in Turkey, where activities focus on the grouting.
The most advanced ultracapacitors in the world are now being manufactured on an industrial scale and deployed commercially thanks to an EU-funded project, providing potent, reliable and fast-charging energy-storage solutions for renewable power grids and electric vehicles.
An EU-funded project is developing new energy system concepts to tackle the technical electricity-grid-based challenges that stand in the way of achieving 100 % renewable electricity in Europe.
Solar cells made with the mineral perovskite are very attractive as a means of producing green energy, largely because of their low cost. An EU-funded project set out to optimise these potentially revolutionary components to help bring renewable energy to a broader market.
An EU-funded project is developing user-centric, smart solutions that will help Europe's expanding urban areas boost their citizens' quality of life and improve the environment as they grow.
An EU-funded project has achieved some of the highest efficiencies ever recorded for a solar module, paving the way for broader commercial deployment of concentrator photovoltaic systems to help drive Europe's transition to renewable energy.
The EU-funded ENACT project has used a combination of computer simulation and experimental validation to develop more efficient and sustainable chemical processes for the energy and pharmaceutical sectors - good for the environment, health, and the EU's competitiveness.
An EU-funded project has brought affordable energy-storage technology into people's homes with smart night-storage heaters, helping the EU to meet its renewable electricity targets.
An EU-funded project is developing a new generation of solar panels that can be part of traditional house elements like roofs, windows and glass facades. The innovative solar panels can be integrated so well in a building that they are not even visible. This will encourage the take-up of solar energy by European consumers and give the European construction industry a competitive advantage.
EU-funded researchers are using mathematical models to improve water management in Africa. Their aim is to balance the water, energy and food needs of communities in a sustainable way while allowing for economic development.
An 'artificial leaf' being developed by EU-funded researchers to produce fuel from sunlight, carbon dioxide and water, could tackle soaring global energy demands, the growing impact of climate change, and dwindling supplies of fossil fuels.
Europe's changing energy market is attracting new, smaller players that lack experience and know-how when it comes to negotiating commercial transactions. An EU-funded project has come up with a solution to help them make better decisions.
An EU-funded project has developed guidelines and tools for energy providers and policymakers that are empowering businesses, communities and households to use electricity wisely, saving consumers money and promoting sustainability.
Climate change mitigation, green labels, renewable energy, clean technology... we are familiar with the words, but how much do we really know and what do we think about them? The EU-funded SILCI project is exploring the world of low-carbon innovations and how they spread through processes of social influence.
Finnish firm AW-Energy is tapping into wave power as a clean energy source.
