INEA signs first H2020 Energy Research Grant

Creation date: December 9, 2014

IndustRE, a € 1.9 million renewable energy research project, is part of the first H2020 Energy research grants transferred to INEA.


On 4 December INEA signed a grant agreement under which eight partners from Germany, Spain, Belgium, United Kingdom and Italy will work together to develop innovative business models to facilitate further growth of variable renewable energy, as well as reduce industrial electricity costs for large energy intensive industries (chemicals, non-ferrous metals, cold storage, steel and water treatment).



IndustRE is one of 12 projects worth more than €20 million selected for funding by the Commission services following the 2014 call for proposals on the market uptake of renewables and biofuels.  



Over the 2014-20 financial period INEA will manage over €3 billion of H2020 energy research projects. 2015’s calls are expected to open still in in December with deadlines in May 2015 with a budget of over €400 million to be managed by INEA, covering domains such as renewable energy; biofuels; electricity grids and storage; smart cities and the decarbonisation of fossil fuels.
