  1. 1. ENERGY CONNECTS Horizon 2020: de basis
  3. 3. ENERGY CONNECTS ACHTERGROND EN CONTEXT “Successful states are obsessed by competition; they make scientists compete for research grants, and businesses compete for start-up funds—and leave the decisions to experts, rather than politicians or bureaucrats. They also foster networks of innovation that stretch from universities to profit-maximising companies, keeping their own role to a minimum.” Economist, 31 August 2013, review of “The Entrepreneurial State” Mariana Mazzucato Government: Investor, Risk-taker, Innovator
  4. 4. ENERGY CONNECTS ACHTERGROND EN CONTEXT Innovatie Generieke subsidies Projectsubsidies -Stimuleren economie - Stimuleren specifieke innovatie -Generiek karakter in een sector / thema -WBSO / RDA / IBox - Horizon 2020 / TKI / MIT
  6. 6. ENERGY CONNECTS EU BELEID Europe 2020 7 Flagship Initiatives Transition from FP7 towards Horizon 2020 Strategic Level Operational level Transforming EU into a smart, sustainable and inclusive economy
  7. 7. ENERGY CONNECTS UNDERSTANDING EXPECTATIONS UNDERSTANDING EXPECTATIONS  Because it is the mindset I must have for developing a competitive project.  Because you need to respond to the «philosophy» of the H2020 calls.  Because my project (proposal) is not (SHOULD NOT BE) isolated, disconnected from the key EU Strategic Agendas. Why should I bother???
  9. 9.

  12. 12. ENERGY CONNECTS HORIZON 2020: BASIS Horizon 2020 Leuk verhaal maar: • Wat zijn topics, waar vind ik ze en hoe moet ik ze lezen? • Hoe kan mijn project eruitzien? • Wat zijn TRL’s? • Hoeveel subsidie krijg ik? • Wie beoordeelt mijn aanvraag? • Hoe zorg ik dat mijn project scoort?
  13. 13. ENERGY CONNECTS LCE 3–2014/2015: Demonstration of renewable electricity and heating/cooling technologies Specific challenge: Complementing the global challenges , the following technology-specific challenges have to be addressed in 2014: a. – c. …….. d. Ocean energy: Demonstration of ocean energy technologies – Demonstrate advanced full scale devices in real world conditions in order to gain further understanding and certainty over installation, operations and decommissioning costs, as well as of high levels of reliability and survivability. Scope: The proposals should bring the proposed technology solutions to a higher TRL level, aiming at “demonstration” of these solutions, accompanied, where appropriate, by supporting research activities and activities targeting market uptake. The proposals should bring the proposed technology solutions from TRL 5-6 to TRL 6-7. Technical issues, synergies between technologies, regional approaches, socio- economic and environmental aspects from a life-cycle perspective (including public acceptance, business cases, pre-normative and legal issues, pollution and recycling) need to be appropriately addressed where relevant. Environment, health and safety issues should be considered in all demonstrations and appropriately addressed. Expected impact: The proposals are expected to have one or more of the general impacts listed below: • Bringing costs of renewable energy down by increasing technology performance, decreasing costs of production, installation time and costs, decreasing of operation and maintenance costs, and increasing reliability and lifetime. • Reducing life-cycle environmental impact. • Improving EU energy security. • Making variable renewable electricity generation more predictable and grid friendly, thereby allowing larger amounts of variable output renewable sources in the grid. • Nurturing the development of the industrial capacity to produce components and systems and opening of new opportunities. • Strengthening the European industrial technology base, thereby creating growth and jobs in Europe. • Contributing to solving the global climate and energy challenges. Type of action: Innovation Actions Deadline: 10/09/2014 and 03/03/2015 Alternative: LCE 2 – Developing the next generation technologies of renewable electricity and heating/cooling HORIZON 2020: BASIS
  14. 14. ENERGY CONNECTS HORIZON 2020: BASIS LCE 10 – 2014: Next generation technologies for energy storage Specific challenge: There is a need to develop new or improved storage technologies with higher performance, availability, durability, performance, safety and lower costs. These new and enhanced storage technologies have to contribute to the cost-efficient integration of distributed and variable renewable energy sources. In addition, life cycle assessment and economic modelling for use of energy storage technologies needs to be refined. Generally, energy storage has to progress in the innovation chain so that the barriers associated with new storage concepts are reduced. This would include adaptation of new materials and developments for improved safety. Scope: Activities should focus on developing the next generation of storage technologies by bringing them from TRL 2 or above towards TRL 5 (please see part G of the General Annexes). They cover storage technologies of all sizes relevant to energy applications and all types of locations. The activities need to take into account grid interfaces and, when appropriate, use synergies between technologies. Research should also address environmental, economic and public acceptance issues or develop recommendations for future energy policy. The Commission considers that proposals requesting a contribution from the EU of between EUR 6 to 9 million would allow this specific challenge to be addressed appropriately. Nonetheless, this does not preclude selection of proposals requesting other amounts. Expected impact: The proposals are expected to cover the general impacts listed below that are relevant for the proposed R&D: • Enlarging the portfolio of effective storage technologies with potential for European wide usage. • Lowering the cost, increasing the efficiency and durability, lower the environmental impact and reducing location constraints on energy storage systems. • Contributing to solutions for high penetration rates of distributed energy resources and intermittent renewable energy. • Integrate storage into the management of the distribution grids to provide increased grid security and stability, e.g. through appropriate integration with ICT tools for the control and management of electricity networks. • Defer investments of grid reinforcement and lower the societal costs associated with high penetration of variable renewable energy sources. • The impacts are expected to be linked to either large scale energy balancing or improved grid congestion management or self- consumption at local level. Type of action: Research & Innovation Actions Deadline: 07/05/2014
