Low-TRL Renewable Energy Technologies workshop
The renewable energy technologies that will form the backbone of the energy system by 2030 and 2050 are still at an early stage of development today. Bringing these new energy conversion solutions, new renewable energy concepts and innovative renewable energy uses faster to commercialization, taking into account social acceptance and secure and affordable energy supply, is challenging. In line with the revised Renewable Energy Directive, which entered into force in 2018 as part of the ‘Clean energy for all Europeans’ package, setting a binding renewable energy target for 2030 of at least 32% of the overall consumed energy in the EU, these new technologies must not only have a commercial potential but they should also have a lower environmental impact and lower greenhouse gases emissions, as well as higher conversion efficiency and higher availability for different market and operating environments than the current renewable energy technologies.
This workshop is a continuation of the previous “Low-TRL Renewable Energy Technologies” collaborative workshop at SP2021. Focused on the same topic, this workshop brings together a selection of H2020 EU-funded research & innovation projects dealing with the challenge of researching, developing and demonstrating innovative, efficient, flexible, cost-competitive and environmentally safe technologies, which are still at a low Technological Readiness Level (TRL 3-4). The workshop will involve experts on new renewable and low-carbon-emission energy generation and conversion technologies, carbon capture and storage and CO2 re-use technologies, smart energy grid and flexible energy storage technologies.
The following projects, funded under the H2020-LC-SC3-2018-2019-2020 call, are invited to present their progress and achievements to date, followed by an interactive discussion which will give them the opportunity to identify possible synergies or potential cooperation on cross-cutting issues to maximise their expected impacts:
