SC3 Secure, Clean and Efficient Energy
Secure, Clean and Efficient Energy is designed to support the transition to a reliable, sustainable and competitive energy system.
Main priority areas under the Energy Challenge
The calls for proposals issued under the first work programme (2014–2015) focused on three main priority areas:
- Energy efficiencyIncluding district heating and building design, materials and components as well as development and demonstration by SMEs of energy-efficient products, services and processes.
- Competitive low-carbon energyIncluding development of next-generation sustainable technologies for renewable electricity, heating and cooling, smart grids and storage.
- Smart cities and communitiesIncluding large-scale demonstration projects (lighthouse projects) that integrate technologies and innovative solutions for energy, ICT and transport.
The Energy Challenge is structured around seven specific objectives and research areas:
- Reducing energy consumption and carbon footprint
- Low-cost, low-carbon electricity supply
- Alternative fuels and mobile energy sources
- A single, smart European electricity grid
- New knowledge and technologies
- Robust decision making and public engagement
- Market uptake of energy and ICT innovation
