Energy Policy and Horizon 2020


Energy Policy and Horizon 2020

  • Energy Road-Map 2050

  • SET-Plan for 2020

  • Horizon 2020

  • Blue Growth

  • Link to Structural Funds

  • Conclusions

Energy Road-Map 2050

  • CutGreenhouseGas Emissions by 80-95% by 2050

  • Implies;

    • More energyefficiency

    • 2/3 of energyfromres

    • Electricityalmostemissions free, despitehigherdemand

  • Imply; Transform the energy system by 2050. Need a new energy model.

SET-Plan for 2020

  • Links technology policy and programmes to 20-20-20 (res-ee-carbon) Policy

  • Technology Road-Maps and Industrial Initiatives, in solar, wind, bioenergy, CCS, grid, nuclear, smart cities.

  • Main contributions so far from FP7, EERP, IEE. Horizon 2020 to follow FP7 and IEE.

  • Contributions possible from NER 300, Member States, Industry

Horizon 2020

Commission proposal for 80b Euro research and innovation programme (2014-2020)

A single programme for three priority areas; excellent science, industrial leadership, societal challenges.

Coupling research to innovation – from research to retail, all forms of innovation

Focus on societal challenges facing EU society, e.g. health, clean energy and transport

Horizon 2020 - Excellent science

  • Proposed funding (million euro, 2014-2020)

Horizon 2020-Industrial leadership

Proposed funding (million euro, 2014-20)

Proposed funding (million euro, 2014-2020)

Horizon 2020 - Societal challenges

  • *Additional €1 788m for nuclear safety and security from the Euratom Treaty activities (2014-2018). Does not include ITER.

Horizon 2020 - Widening participation

Principle of excellence: continue to allocate funding on the basis of competitive calls, selecting only the best projects.

Clear division of labour between cohesion policy and Horizon 2020.

Cohesion policy: support for regions in building up their research and innovation capacity.

Horizon 2020: widen participation, better coordination between the two Union funding programmes, support policy learning reforms.

Accompanying measures in Horizon 2020 to ensure that excellence prevails wherever it exists, including: twinning, ERA chairs, support for access to international networks, development of smart specialisation strategies.

Horizon 2020 - Key challenge 'secure, clean and efficient energy‘

Objective: to make the transition to a reliable, sustainable and competitive energy system, in the face of increasingly scarce resources, increasing energy needs and climate change.

Broad lines of activities: (1) Reducing energy consumption and carbon footprint by smart and sustainable use; (2) Low-cost, low-carbon electricity supply; (3) Alternative fuels and mobile energy sources; (4) A single, smart European electricity grid; (5) New knowledge and technologies; (6) Robust decision making and public engagement; (7) Market uptake of energy innovation.

Horizon 2020 - Next steps

Ongoing: Parliament and Council negotiations on the basis of the Commission proposals

Ongoing: Parliament and Council negotiations on EU budget 2014-2020 (including overall budget for Horizon 2020)

10 July 2012 Final calls under 7th Framework Programme for research to bridge gap towards Horizon 2020

Mid 2013: Adoption of legislative acts by Parliament and Council on Horizon 2020

1/1/2014: Horizon 2020 starts, launch of first calls

Blue Growth

  • Long-term strategy to support growth in the maritime sector

  • Broad coverage – shipping, shipbuilding, fisheries, regional development, coastal tourism, offshore energy production, desalination, marine resources, marine environment.

  • Programme elements - Marine knowledge 2020, maritime spatial planning, integrated maritime surveillance, sea basin strategies.

Blue Growth - Energy

Offshore Wind

Offshore Grid

Ocean Energy

Marine Bioenergy

Structural Funds

Guidelines contain a strong trend towards innovation

Generally link well to sectoral policies

Of course … national capitals are the key to achieving a good combination

Conclusions (Offshore Energy Viewpoint)

Overall policy picture is favourable

Policy and economic reality favours scale and early deployment

If Horizon 2020 is approved it will be a key “icebreaker” in a “frozen” credit and investment climate

Conclusions (Offshore Energy Viewpoint)

Need to combine sources of support, political and financial

Offshore grid in the front line for substantial support

Ocean energy does have a home in Horizon 2020, but it needs to organise in the policy context and prove its potential and maturity
