Horizon 2020 is the biggest EU Research and Innovation programme ever with nearly €80 billion of funding available over 7 years (2014 to 2020) – in addition to the private investment that this money will attract. It promises more breakthroughs, discoveries and world-firsts by taking great ideas from the lab to the market [1].

The Horizon 2020 programme is a European multi-year Framework, which aims to:

  • reduce energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions by means of the intelligent and sustainable use of energy
  • produce electricity at low cost and low emission
  • research mobile energy resources and alternative fuels
  • set up a unique European electricity smart grid
  • invent new greener technologies
  • adopt energy innovation
