THERMOSS is an EU funded project within Horizon 2020 programme and it proposes an industry-focused, innovation-intensive approach to ease and foster the introduction of cutting-edge heating and cooling technologies for building energy retrofitting at European level, targeting residential buildings and buildings connected to District Heating and Cooling (DHC) networks.
The 4th edition of the International Workshop on Degradation Issues of Fuel Cells and Electrolysers will take place this year from 30 September to 02 October in Corfu, Greece. Co-organised by FORTH/ICEHT, the University of Birmingham (UoB) and the Horizon 2020, FCH JU funded project – NewSOC, the event will cover different subjects:
Durability requirements in Fuel Cell and Electrolyser applications
Mechanisms limiting Fuel Cell or Electrolyser Durability
System issues and industrial applications
Degradation and lifetime aspects for electrolysers, electrodes, single cells, components and stacks

RM Summit 2020 will gather experts from Europe and the rest of the world to discuss Innovation and new Technologies covering the entire raw materials value chain. Most relevant topics in the raw materials sector will be addressed such as strategies concerning supply and access of raw materials, European industrial competitiveness and innovation capacity as well as entrepreneurship and innovation in education.
Updated: the presentations and a recording of the meeting have been made available.
On 5-6 February 2020 a group of technical experts selected by the members of the Innovation Fund Expert Group (IFEG) will meet to discuss potential methodologies to estimate GHG emissions avoidance and relevant costs of innovative projects eligible for funding under the Innovation Fund, in the preparation for the first call for proposals expected for June 2020.
Are batteries enough to complement wind and solar production? Can we increase renewable generation on islands without compromising the stability of the electricity grid? While renewables are crucial to decarbonise electricity generation, the sun doesn’t always shine and the wind doesn’t always blow when we need our electricity. The demand for electricity is also variable, both on a daily (day vs night) and on a seasonal (winter vs summer) basis, especially on islands that attract tourism. This webinar will introduce the integration of renewables into smart energy systems on islands with a focus on storage and on grids and infrastructure.
The Energy Community Secretariat launched the call for key regional infrastructure projects that may benefit from EU technical assistance and grants and streamlined permitting procedures. To qualify, the project must have a cross-border impact and help the Energy Community to achieve its energy and climate policy objectives. The call is open to the following categories of projects: electricity transmission, storage, smart grid; gas transmission, storage, LNG/CNG infrastructure; oil transmission and storage.
In pursuit of “Renewable Energy Directive 2030” and “32% RE Mix Target”, the European market is projected to install a further 150GW of solar, 120GW of wind, and 20GW of storage over the next decade, underlying significant opportunities in competitive auctions, corporate PPAs, floating technology, energy storage, and a comprehensive set of smart solutions to manage grids as well existing and newly-developed projects.
2nd ESES will firstly gather a full high-level industry chain to discuss the orderly planning roadmap, future flourishment of solar in utility, C&I, self-consumption sectors, storage application as hybrid or ancillary services, as well as investment and financial evaluation over new projects and new technologies. A total of 500+ regional senior industry leaders, including governmental officers, utilities, corporate energy buyers, developers, investors, financiers, solution providers, and learned experts will be brought under one roof and exchange their latest business ideas.
The 2020 EPRI European Workshop Week will bring together TSOs, DSOs and European electricity stakeholders in focused workshops covering transmission and distribution operations and planning, information communications technology, cyber security, blockchain applications, energy storage, customer integration, DER, energy efficiency and renewable generation. The workshops will offer insight into the dynamic research EPRI is doing in these areas, support application of the R&D results, and will also highlight how some European utilities are preparing for and adapting to the evolution of the electric power industry.
