Creation date: April 21, 2017
The projects plan to develop next-generation technologies for biofuels, or for capturing and storing CO2 emissions from fossil fuels, as well as support market uptake of renewable energy technologies. They have applied for funding under the 2016 - 2017 Competitive Low-Carbon Energy call.
The projects will receive almost €74 million in total, following the signature of grant agreements prepared in cooperation with INEA. More details about the successful projects will be announced after the grant agreements are signed.
The projects are expected to be launched by 5 September at the latest.
