SMART ALTITUDE aims at enabling and accelerating the implementation of low-carbon policies in winter tourism regions. Smart Altitude will demonstrate the efficiency of a decision support tool integrating all challenges into a step-by-step approach to energy transition. The approach is implemented in three case study sites and prepares for replication in 20 other tourist settlements in the Alpine Space. The project targets policymakers, infrastructure operators, investors, tourism associations and entrepreneurs organisations.

OSMOSE is preparing the necessary flexibilities for the electricity system of tomorrow. The integration of a rapidly growing share of non-dispatchable Renewable Energy Sources (RES) into the traditional electricity system will require a significantly increased level of (system) flexibility through a holistic approach that captures synergies across needs and/or hybrizing sources to create a cost-efficient power system.
STARDUST aims to transform present day cities to smarter cities through a holistic replication model. It will be combining expertise of the different consortium partners on smart buildings, energy efficiency, ICT, and e-mobility, coupled with innovation and social engagement coming from the locals.
CH2P aims at building a transition technology for early infrastructure deployment, developing a new technology for the future network of HRS, using widely available carbon-lean natural gas (NG) or bio-methane to produce hydrogen and power through Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) technology.
The overall objective of the JIVE initiatives are to advance the commercialisation of fuel cell buses through large-scale deployment of vehicles and infrastructure so that by the end of the project, fuel cell buses are commercially viable for bus operators to include in their fleets without subsidy, and that local and national governments feel empowered to regulate for zero emission propulsion for their public transport systems.
INSHIP aims at the definition of a European Common Research and Innovation Agenda (ECRIA) engaging the major European research institutes with relevant and recognized activities on Solar Heat for Industrial Processes (SHIP) in order to foster the development and production of these technologies in the industrial sector.
STAGE-STE is an integrated research program (IRP) on the topics Concentrating Solar Thermal Energy that engages all major European research institutes, with the main objective to create a structure for integrated research to fill gaps in coordination between various national programs and offer to the entire European community, under the alliance research - industry, the most competitive value to compete internationally.
The project BRICKER has the objective of reducing energy consumption in public buildings by 50%. It will call on the cutting-edge expertise of partners from 6 European countries. These include technological SMEs, research organisations, construction companies, public bodies and a media agency. BRICKER will deliver innovative retrofitting solutions and demonstrate these in three real settings chosen for their potential for replication. They are located in Belgium, Spain and Turkey.
With the Graphene Flagship, Europe has launched a new form of joint, coordinated research initiatives of unprecedented scale. The Graphene Flagship brings together an academic-industrial consortium aiming at a breakthrough for technological innovation. The research effort will cover the entire value chain, from materials production to components and system integration, and targets a number of specific goals that exploit the unique properties of graphene.
GEOTERM project aims to assess the suitability and potential of the territory of the Autonomous Province of Trento to widely host plants of heat exchange with the ground-coupled heat pump for air conditioning, promoting the responsible and sustainable development of this technology in order to contribute at the goals of the H2020 program.
