Horizon 2020 Challenge 3 - Secure, Clean and Efficient Energy - covers the full innovation cycle – from 'proof of concept' to applied research, pre-commercial demonstration and market uptake measures. It also exploits synergies with other relevant areas, e.g. information and communication technologies.
Achieving energetic efficiency and sustainability is a social challenge that involves government entities, regulators, researchers, investors, energy and environmental sustainability companies and end users.
The European framework program, Horizon 2020's energy programs allocates funding for solutions to this specific challenge. These funds aim to create a holistic platform to be used by the various entities, to support and promote sustainability and green energy solutions.
The funding supports a variety of topics including:
- Smart and sustainable construction as well as sustainable cities
- Renewable and efficient energy solutions, reduction of greenhouse gas
- Sustainability and Circular Economy, regulation and energy policies
