Horizon 2020 Green Deal Call now launched

The Horizon 2020 funded Green Deal Call has now been launched. It includes the following topics in the Clean, affordable and secure energy area of the Call:

  • LC-GD-2-1-2020: Innovative land-based and offshore renewable energy technologies and their integration into the energy system – budget €86M
  • LC-GD-2-2-2020: Develop and demonstrate a 100 MW electrolyser upscaling the link between renewables and commercial/industrial applications – budget €60M
  • LC-GD-2-3-2020: Accelerating the green transition and energy access Partnership with Africa – budget €40M

The deadline for proposal submission is 26 January 2021. More information can be found in our Call summary.

As the Green Deal Call is part of Horizon 2020, UK organisations continue to be eligible to participate under the same arrangements as Horizon 2020.

A series of online brokerage events is being organised by the Knowledge Transfer Network. The events are suitable for anyone with an interest in participating in European projects in the Green Deal Call. Delegates from all European Member States are encouraged to attend the events. The online event covering the energy topics was held on 9 October, the slides and recording can be found here.

There was also a Virtual Brokerage Event on the European Green Deal Call on 13 and 14 October. Details of the participants are available now and the recordings will be available soon.

Please contact the EU Energy Focus team if you are considering submitting a proposal for the Green Deal Call.

Accelerating CCUS Technologies (ACT) – third Call for Proposals now open

ACT has announced its third Call for transnational proposals aimed at accelerating and maturing CCUS technologies through targeted innovation and research activities. Participating countries will support research and development as well as pilot and demonstration projects. Projects must contain three organisations from a minimum of three different participating countries/regions and national funding rates apply. The deadline for stage 1 submissions is 10 November 2020. For further details on the ACT Call can be found here.

UK Stakeholder Groups

You should still consider joining one of our sector stakeholder groups. There are UK Stakeholder Groups for bioenergy, solar, wind, CCS, smart cities, smart grids, ocean and energy efficiency.  Stakeholder group membership offers an opportunity to help influence policy at EU and UK levels; and to build your networks and knowledge to take advantage of the resulting opportunities.

It’s important to have representative groups made up of industry, academia and the public sector to help ensure feedback matches as closely as possible to UK priorities, strengths and interests.  This should give UK organisations the best possible chance of success in securing future EU funding and related activity, along with wider international business opportunities against increasingly tough competition.

We are very interested in hearing from organisations with a view to joining these stakeholder groups. Please contact the EU Energy Focus team if you would like more information or would like to explore joining.
