As part of Horizon 2020's energy challenge for secure, clean and efficient energy for Europe, the European Union has funded 50 new projects under the Horizon 2020 Energy Efficiency Call 2015. These projects were selected from a total of 478 evaluated proposals and confirm that Horizon 2020 responds to the needs of all energy actors, acting as a driver towards a more sustainable energy future.
The projects cover the whole innovation chain for energy efficiency, including all aspects of research and innovation on sustainable energy solutions for consumers; heating and cooling; buildings; public authorities; industry and products; and innovative financing.
Some indicative examples of these projects are:
- INDIGO: New generation of intelligent efficient district cooling systems
- ZERO-PLUS: Achieving near zero and positive energy settlements in Europe using advanced energy technology
- ODYSSEE-MURE: A decision support tool for energy efficiency policy evaluation
- LEMON: Project development assistance to launch €15M of energy investments in more than 600 private and public social housing dwellings
