COMPACTS2 aims to validate methodology for design of more compact, lightweight and robust steam bottoming cycles that will promote their implementation in offshore oil and gas production.
Approximately half of buildings' energy demand is related to heating. LTTG+ will develop smart heating solutions for new urban areas: local low-temperature district heating grids which utilize nearby surplus heat sources.
CO2 capture and liquefaction at Preem refineries in Lysekil or Gothenburg, Sweden, for storage of CO2 on the Norwegian Continental Shelf (Preem CCS Prestudy).
Evolving from the initial MaRINET project, EU H2020 is currently working with the project MaRINET2 towards a vision of exploiting the renewable energy potential of the oceans.
CHEERS - Chinese-European Emission-Reducing Solutions
On 1 October 2017, a new Research and Innovation Action, designated CHEERS, was commenced under the EC-Horizon 2020 programme's Low-Carbon Initiative.
ELEGANCY – Enabling a Low-Carbon Economy via Hydrogen and CCS
As the only technology that can substantially reduce CO2 emissions from fossil fuels, CCS is an essential component in essentially all IPCC scenarios that limit global warming to below 2°C.
The objective of MARINERG-i is to become the leading internationally distributed infrastructure in the Marine Renewable Energy (MRE) sector. Its integrated nature and co-ordinated approach will accelerate the research development and deployment of offshore wind, wave, tidal and combined energy technologies and help maintain Europe as a global leader in this industry. In addition, MARINERG-i will strengthen European, scientific and engineering excellence and expertise as it’s combined facilities represent an indispensable tool to foster innovation across a large variety of MRE technologies and systems and through all key stages of technology development (TRL’s 1-9).
HVDC Inertia provision
Future power systems are facing new challenges when traditional thermal generation units are replaced by renewable energy sources with power electronic grid interfaces.
CO2 storage data consortium – sharing data from CO2 storage projects
Sharing of reference datasets from pioneering CO2 storage projects is essential to accelerate improved understanding, build capacity, reduce costs and minimize uncertainties associated with CO2 storage in deep geological formations.
