  • Harnessing the sun to clean up industrial processes

    20/04/2017
    The production of cement and lime involves fossil fuels and produces harmful greenhouse gases. Industry could change this, if scientists can develop a technology that can use solar power for high temperature industrial processes. The EU-funded SOLPART project has built lab-scale reactors that use a solar powered process to meet this need.

  • Cypriot sunshine for solar thermal energy research

    12/04/2017
    The NESTER project is twinning the Cyprus Institute and several internationally–leading solar energy research institutions to strengthen solar thermal energy research in Cyprus, Europe and beyond.

  • Sharing maritime space to unlock growth in the blue economy

    15/02/2017
    From mussel farming to wind farms, the EU-funded MARIBE project showed how various marine projects could cut costs and benefit from each other by linking up. Optimising the use of our oceans and seas would also stimulate growth in the blue economy.

  • A move to bring down costs for light electric vehicles

    06/10/2016
    The EU-funded project RESOLVE is developing technologies for electric-powered light four wheelers that extend range and reduce cost. This could tempt more car drivers to make the switch to these smaller, less polluting alternatives for daily urban commutes.

  • Collaborative, cost-effective approach to fuel cell manufacturing

    29/08/2016
    Efforts to establish a robust hydrogen-based transport sector in Europe must be underpinned by an equally healthy manufacturing industry for essential hydrogen-powered vehicle components.
  • Cleaner urban transport with hydrogen buses

    29/08/2016
    Trials in cities around the world have demonstrated that fuel-cell passenger buses can cut emissions and noise pollution while providing good quality public transport. New EU-funded projects could double Europe’s fleet of hydrogen buses – reducing vehicle and infrastructure costs per bus to boost take-up of the technology.
  • Hydrogen drives Europe towards emissions-free transport

    29/08/2016
    A clean revolution is quietly taking place on Europe’s roads. Hydrogen fuel cells are powering fleets of public buses and refuelling stations are being deployed. Building on the results of several pilot projects, uptake of the technology is accelerating rapidly, putting hydrogen fuel cells in a position to underpin zero-emissions transport Europe-wide.
  • New tools make solar power more attractive to business

    13/06/2016
    EU-funded researchers have developed and patented tools to make photovoltaic generation more reliable, cost-effective and easier to integrate into the grid, providing a boost to solar power SMEs and helping to make sustainable energy more attractive to businesses and end users. Commercial spin-offs are marketing the results in Europe and beyond.
  • Nuclear energy network works to improve safety

    05/04/2016
    National nuclear energy authorities, operators and researchers continue to collaborate on developing better prevention and mitigation strategies for severe accidents through a network developed by the EU-funded SARNET2 project.
  • New tools make solar power more attractive to business

    01/04/2016
    EU-funded researchers have developed and patented tools to make photovoltaic generation more reliable, cost-effective and easier to integrate into the grid, providing a boost to solar power SMEs and helping to make sustainable energy more attractive to businesses and end users. Commercial spin-offs are marketing the results in Europe and beyond.
