GEOTHERMICA - ERA NET Cofund Geothermal (GEOTHERMICA)

Start date: Jan 1, 2017, End date: Dec 31, 2021,

Europe is challenged to increase the share of renewable energy for heating and cooling, industrial processes, power generation and energy storage. Geothermal energy is a vastly under-utilized indigenous, clean, low footprint and continuously available energy resource, and thus uniquely positioned to substantially contribute to a safe and secure energy supply of Europe’s Energy Union. Hitherto only ...

Eranet Sustainable Urbanisation Global Initiative (EN-SUGI)

Start date: Dec 1, 2016, End date: Nov 30, 2021,

Cities around the globe are struggling to meet the needs of their citizens with respect to food, energy and water. These three sectors are inextricably linked and actions in one sector more often have impacts in one or both of the others; these interacting sectors can therefore be seen as a Food-Energy-Water Nexus (FEW Nexus) of systems. The ERANET Sustainable Urbanisation Global Initiative (EN-SU ...
