72 project proposals were submitted last January for 9 different topics under the H2020 Energy Efficiency Call. Among them, 21 projects will receive nearly €53m of funding to support the clean energy transition in Europe.
These projects will further facilitate Europe’s low carbon energy transition by helping to upgrade buildings’ energy performance, enhancing the role of consumers to change the market and developing smart energy services, channeling further private finance into energy efficiency investments and supporting public authorities and policy makers in driving the energy transition.
Currently, EASME is preparing the grant agreements with the aim to kick-off projects from September 2020 onwards.
Once the projects are contracted, over 219 project partners will work across 26 countries to deliver the European Green Deal’s objectives to decarbonise our energy system.
