Twenty renewable energy projects selected for Horizon 2020 funding

Creation date: June 11, 2018

The projects awarded the EU funding are expected to develop or demonstrate technology for renewable energy sources and bring it closer to the market. They will receive over €140 million to carry out their work plans after signing grant agreements with INEA, for which they have time until mid-October 2018. More details about the funded projects will be announced after the grant agreements are signed. The projects are expected to be launched by the end of the year.

Altogether, 82 applications were evaluated in the call (see the table below), of which 20 were selected for the EU funding.
