Short Description: Sunrise is one of the candidates for the next European FET Flagship. It proposes a sustainable alternative to the fossil-based, energy-intensive production of fuels and base chemicals. The needed energy will be provided by sunlight, the raw materials will be molecules abundantly available in the atmosphere, such as carbon dioxide, oxygen and nitrogen.

Short Description: BATTERY 2030+ is a long-term initiative enabling Europe to take the lead in battery science and technology, by developing radically new concepts for the batteries of the future. This means batteries with properties such as ultrahigh performance and smart functionalities within a sustainable framwork. BATTERY 2030+ formulates a roadmap for European battery research in 2030 and long thereafter. The initiative aims to generate new ideas for the ongoing energy transition and digital transformation.
Smart Integration of Energy Storages in Local Multi Energy Systems for maximising the Share of Renewables in Europe’s Energy Mix
Consortium: KIT / AIT / DTU / EDF SA with EIFER EWIV/ EERA AISBL / VITO
EERA Joint Programmes involved: JP ES, JP SC, JP SG, JP E3S
Countries involved: Germany, Austria, France, Denmark, Belgium
Total Budget: 2.440.683 €

Short description: INTENSYS4EU aims at addressing the SET-Plan identified novel interacting integration challenges, where – the consumer becomes active and is put at the center of the energy system, – a demand focus that increases energy efficiency across the energy system, – an energy system optimization leading to a secure, cost-effective, clean and competitive energy supply. Energy networks are critical to successfully address the above integration challenges.
