Städte als Keimzellen der Energiewende in Europa gefördert in Horizon 2020

22 May 2019, Berlin, Germany

Cities are the foundation of the energy transition. The European energy and climate goals can only be achieved through the engagement of cities. The Framework Programme Horizon 2020 for Research and Innovation promotes new solutions for implementing the energy transition.

The German National Contact Point (NCP) for Energy organizes a panel discussion which focuses on “Cities as foundation of the energy transition” at “Berliner Energietage 2019”, one of the most influential energy events in Germany.

Representatives from the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy and DG ENER discuss the chances and advantages of a participation in the Framework Programme Horizon 2020 with experienced project partners from cities and communities.

The panel discussion gives room for the audience to access detailed information, to ask questions and receive customised advice. Afterwards experts offer personal consultations.

The panel discussion will be held in German.

Registration is required.

Transition to fossil-free industries: technology pathways and policies

18 March 2019, Brussels, Belgium

Technology pathways and roadmaps towards decarbonisation are emerging in sectors such as steel, plastics, and other sectors.

The role of electrification, of hydrogen, circular and biogenic carbon utilisation, CCUS and new interdependencies between sectors are salient features of such pathways and for re-industrializing Europe.

The event will take stock of the current understanding of future options and strategies and based on this explore the implications for future policy-making, research and society at large.

The event will bring together EU-funded project and national as well as regional initiatives related to the decarbonisation of energy intensive industry sectors.

The event adopts a multi-stakeholder format to enable the development of a joint understanding of opportunities, challenges and policy needs in the ´hard to abate´ industrial sectors.

The overall objective to explore emerging visions for industrial zero net-carbon pathways and their policy implications and share information and develop knowledge between key EC, core industrial regions, industry and academic experts.

The event includes: i) policy sessions, to present and discuss policy options in order to explore new ideas and approaches to policy development. ii) stock-taking of emerging pathways, to present and discuss technology pathways based on current understanding, and identification of knowledge gaps.
