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 EU Energy Focus team coordinates stakeholder groups for bioenergy, solar, wind, CCS, smart cities, smart grids, ocean and a group on energy efficiency is in the process of being set-up. Stakeholder group membership is an opportunity to help influence future Work Programme content; receive the latest news on Work Programme development; and build your networks and knowledge to take advantage of these funding opportunities. Please contact the EU Energy Focus team if you would like more information or would like to join any of these groups.
The EU Energy Focus team held a webinar on the 2015 Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Call for Proposals on Wednesday 10th June. The details of the Call for Proposals were presented by Jean-Luc Delplancke, the Head of the Programme Unit at the FCH JU.

The EU Energy Focus team has produced a summary of the results of the 2014 Horizon 2020 Energy Calls for Proposals. The summary includes data on success rates and examples of funded projects. The summary can be downloaded from here.
The EU Energy Focus service provides support for a range of European funding opportunities with a focus on Horizon 2020, but also covering opportunities such as the Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCHJU). Our key area of activity is the Horizon 2020 Secure, Clean and Efficient Energy Challenge, which covers research, demonstration, innovation and market transformation actions in: Energy Efficiency; Competitive low-Carbon Energy; and Smart Cities and Communities.
