Horizon 2020: Energy Efficiency Call 2016-2017
Energy efficiency is a no-regret option for Europe, addressed by both short-term and long-term EU policies. The EU is aiming to progressively decrease primary energy consumption by 2020 and 2030. Research and demonstration activities within this area will focus on buildings, industry, heating and cooling, SMEs and energy-related products and services, integration of ICT and cooperation with the telecom sector.
Building on the priorities of the consultation under the SET-Plan’s “Towards an Integrated Roadmap”, the Energy Efficiency area of this Work Programme has been designed for 2016/2017 with a stronger focus on consumer-related issues under the sub-area ‘Engaging consumers towards energy efficiency’. In addition, a strong consumer-oriented approach characterises many of the topics in the sub-areas of ‘Heating and cooling’, ‘Buildings’, ‘Industry, products and services’, and ‘Innovative financing for energy efficiency’.
