Personal Reliance on Low Carbon Technologies EIC
Closing date: Open call

The provision and utilisation of energy in the UK is changing as we progress towards a low carbon future. We also need to manage the experience of stakeholders and safeguard vulnerable customers as we progress with the decarbonisation of the energy system itself. This creates new challenges for network owners and operators as they seek to efficiently manage aging assets at the same time as integrating new technologies and addressing the changing expectations of a wide and diverse range of stakeholders.

Implications of Climate Change for Energy Networks EIC
Closing date: Open call

The provision and utilisation of energy in the UK is changing as we move towards a low carbon future within the context of net zero and the energy transition. In addition, the decarbonisation of heating will alter energy flows, which are likely to change significantly with the weather. The assets interacting with the electricity distribution networks are changing through the use of a wide range of Low Carbon Technologies, such as electric vehicles, renewable generation and low carbon heating.

Supporting public authorities in driving the energy transition
Horizon 2020

Closing date: 10 September 2020

The delivery of the Energy Union targets requires the full engagement of the public sector at all governance levels. Local and regional public authorities have a crucial role in setting ambitious energy efficiency strategies, for instance in the framework of the Covenant of Mayors for Climate & Energy and Smart Cities & Communities or the Clean Energy for EU islands initiative. The political commitment at local level should be enhanced and the focus should turn to implementation and effective monitoring of concrete energy efficiency solutions and actions, which can contribute to modernise and decarbonise the European economy.

Feasibility Studies ESA Space Solutions
Closing date: 31 December 2020

Feasibility Studies provide the preparatory framework to identify, analyse and define new potentially sustainable applications and services within the ESA Business Applications programme. They have to be compliant with the following requirements: they are user driven, they benefit from the integrated use of one or more space assets and the tenderer intends to pursue a demonstration project after successful completion of the feasibility study. The Feasibility Study is likely to run at least 6 months but shall not run longer than 9 months. The duration depends on the complexity of the activity and the degree of upfront buy-in by user communities and other partners. Assuming the Feasibility Study is successful, it is expected that it evolves into a Demonstration Project, the final target being the implementation of a commercial service.
