SUNRISE and ENERGY-X join forces and lead to SUNERGY, a new initiative in the area of fossil-free fuels and chemicals.
Over 100 stakeholders of the Coordination and Support Actions (CSAs) SUNRISE and ENERGY-X gathered on February 5-6, 2020 in Brussels for the kick-off meeting of SUNERGY, a large-scale research and innovation (R&I) initiative in the area of fossil-free fuels and chemicals. Renewable energy experts from academia, industry and policy addressed the current opportunities and challenges towards decarbonizing the European industry and society over the next 30 years.
SUNRISE and ENERGY-X are two CSA projects funded under the Horizon 2020 call “FETFLAG-01-2018” within the research area of Energy, Environment and Climate Change. Both SUNRISE and ENERGY-X aim to develop sustainable approaches for the storage of renewable energy (solar and wind) through its conversion to fuels and commodity chemicals using abundant molecules such as carbon dioxide, water and nitrogen. The two projects brought together 30 committed organisations, backed by an initial supporting community of approx. 300 stakeholders from academia, industry, and society
