Horizon 2020 Energy Efficiency

The Commission is in the process of updating some of the content on this website in light of the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union. If the site contains content that does not yet reflect the withdrawal of the United Kingdom, it is unintentional and will be addressed.

Achieving the full energy transition potential calls for a paradigm shift, and many solutions are investigated to involve as much people as possible and support them reducing their energy consumption.   This September 2020, 10 partners gathered online to kick-off NUDGE, a new project funded by the Horizon 2020 European programme.
