H2020: EU Research and Innovation

The vision of the Energy Union put forward by the European Commission in February 2015 is of an integrated continent-wide energy system where strong, innovative and competitive companies can develop the industrial products and technology needed to deliver energy efficiency and low-carbon technologies. Citizens should be able to take ownership of the transition and participate actively in the market. Both the Energy Union and the Digital Single Market focus on tangible benefits for the consumer.

With the strong belief that innovation is an investment in our future, the European Commission is supporting via Horizon 2020 - the biggest EU Research and Innovation programme ever – breakthrough close to market projects in the area of Smart Grids and Energy Storage, which have the potential to contribute to a successful digitally supported energy transition.To complement individual project's work, the BRIDGE initiative offers a discussion forum to the currently running Horizon 2020 Smart Grid and Energy Storage projects, to create a structured view on cross-cutting issues which are encountered by the projects and might constitute obstacles to innovation.
