European manufacturing industry faces increasing product variances resulting as a consequence of frequent innovation, short product lifecycles, small series production, and shrinking production cycles. At the same time, production cost must be continuously reduced.Agile, transformable and re-usable automation and robotics is be a key enabler to manage those trends. However, few robotic components ...

Remediation and mitigation of CO2 leakage (MIRECOL)

Start date: Mar 1, 2014, End date: Feb 28, 2017,

Safety, reliability and controllability are essential elements influencing the public perception and licensing of CO2 storage. Therefore a thorough analysis of leakage mechanisms and threats to the safety and security of storage will be the first activity in the MiReCOL project. This will form the basis for an analysis of mitigation and remediation options. Both existing (state-of-the-art) and new ...

"European oceans will be subject to massive development of marine infrastructure in the near future. The most obvious is the energy facilities e.g. offshore wind farms, exploitation of wave energy, expansion of electricity connections, and also further development and implementation of marine aquaculture. This will also lead to an increased need for marine infrastructure to support installation an ...

EERA Design Tools for Offshore Wind Farm Cluster (EERA-DTOC)

Start date: Jan 1, 2012, End date: Jun 30, 2015,

The European Energy Research Alliance (EERA) together with some high-impact industry partners addresses the call proposing an integrated and validated design tool combining the state-of-the-art wake, yield and electrical models available in the consortium, as a plug-in architecture with possibility for third party models. To decrease uncertainties around wind farm wake predictions, a small measur ...

Sub-seabed CO2 Storage: Impact on Marine Ecosystems (ECO2) (ECO2)

Start date: May 1, 2011, End date: Apr 30, 2015,

The ECO2 project sets out to assess the risks associated with the storage of CO2 below the seabed. Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) is regarded as a key technology for the reduction of CO2 emissions from power plants and other sources at the European and international level. The EU will hence support a selected portfolio of demonstration projects to promote, at industrial scale, the implementation ...

PANACEA aims at developing methods and tools for improved prediction and validation of the long-term behavior of sequestered CO2. The objectives are to: 1) Identify and quantify the factors responsible for the long-term stability of the stored CO2, thus requiring a clear understanding of the dynamics of the injected CO2, chemical interactions with the host rock, and the evolution in time of its pa ...

Marine Renewable Integrated Application Platform (MARINA Platform)

Start date: Jan 1, 2010, End date: Jun 30, 2014,

MARINA is a European project dedicated to bringing offshore renewable energy applications closer to the market by creating new infrastructures for both offshore wind and ocean energy converters. It addresses the need for creating a cost-efficient technology development basis to kick-start growth of the nascent European marine renewable energy (MRE) industry in the deep offshore – a major future gl ...

CO2 Site Closure Assessment Research (CO2CARE)

Start date: Jan 1, 2011, End date: Dec 31, 2013,

CO2CARE aims to support the large scale demonstration of CCS technology by addressing the research requirements of CO2 storage site abandonment. It will deliver technologies and procedures for abandonment and post-closure safety, satisfying the regulatory requirements for transfer of responsibility. The project will focus on three key areas: well abandonment and long-term integrity; reservoir mana ...

Characterisation of European CO2 storage (SiteChar)

Start date: Jan 1, 2011, End date: Dec 31, 2013,

SiteChar will facilitate the implementation of CO2 storage in Europe by improving and extending standard site characterisation workflows, and by establishing the feasibility of CO2 storage on representative potential CO2 complexes suitable for development in the near term.Reasonable estimates of the theoretical capacities of storage sites have been undertaken in previous studies. We will develop a ...

Research into Impacts and Safety in CO2 Storage (RISCS) (RISCS)

Start date: Jan 1, 2010, End date: Dec 31, 2013,

"Although significant leakage from CO2 storage sites is not expected, if it did occur there could be adverse environmental consequences, which are not well constrained. The objective of RISCS is to provide fundamental research on environmental impacts, necessary to underpin frameworks for the safe management of CO2 storage sites. To achieve this, RISCS will quantitatively assess environmental impa ...

The project contributes to the improvement of the concept of Enhanced Geothermal Systems by investigating the role of induced seismicity, which is twofold: (i) an instrument to image fluid pathways induced by hydraulic stimulation treatments, which has been done to some extent in previous projects; and (ii) an implication of such treatments to potential seismic hazards. The mitigation of induced s ...
