The EU Energy Focus service is a free, Government-funded service that aims to ensure that UK companies, research institutions and other organisations are well informed and have every chance of success in applying for and securing European funding for energy-related projects. Our services include one-to-one discussion of proposal ideas, webinars on key subjects and review of draft proposals.
The 2015 Horizon 2020 Energy Calls for Proposals opened on 10th December 2014. With a total budget of over €500m, they cover a range of technology areas including energy efficiency, renewable energy technologies, smart grids and smart cities.
UK organisations can participate in a number of ways. Proposals must usually involve a minimum of three organisations from three different Member States or Associated Countries. The submission deadlines are in February, May and June 2015. More information can be found here.
