Tapping the potential of  Renewable Heating and Cooling 
EUROGIA2020 & RHC-Platform Joint Event 

Date : Monday, September 16th, 2013
Time : 14:00-  19:00  
Venue: GdFSUEZ 
Direction Recherche & Innovation
1 - 2 Place Samuel de Champlain
Faubourg de l’Arche
92930 PARIS LA DÉFENSE CEDEX 

EUROGIA2020 and the European Technology Platform on Renewable Heating & Cooling (RHC-Platform) are organizing a joint information day and brokerage event under the auspices of GdFSuez in Paris on September 16th, 2013. 

Heat represents roughly half of the final energy demand in Europe. According to the Common Vision of the RHC-Platform, over 25% of heat consumed in the European Union in 2020 could be generated with renewable energy technologies and by 2030 RHC technologies could supply over half the heat used in Europe. Tapping the full potential of renewable heating and cooling will require the development of reliable, efficient and affordable technology.

This event aims at bringing together stakeholders from the renewable heating & cooling sector, as well as public authorities from key countries to present the funding schemes for R&D&D projects in the field of renewable heating and cooling.  
During the brokerage event, participants are invited to present their possible project ideas to set up successful project consortia and can get individual consultation with EUROGIA2020 and Public Authorities on any questions they may have. 

EUROGIA2020 & RHC-Platform Joint event will include high level speakers from GdFSuez and other leading industries, key EUROGIA2020 supporting countries and from the European Commission.

EUROGIA+ at Korea Day 2013

30/04/2013

Korea EUREKA Day will be held in Istanbul on 28 -30 May in Istanbul. 
This event jointly convened by Kore Institute of Advancement Technology (KIAT), Korean Ministry of Knowledge Economy (MKE) and the Turkish EUREKA  chairmanship aims at generating innovative EUREKA projects and bringing closer Korean and European industry representatives. This three days event will be enlivened with the matchmaking and informative seminars. 


EUROGIA+  will be actively participating in EUREKA Korea Day 2013 and  our general manager, Gabriel Marquette will chair the clean environment & efficient energy matchmaking seminar. 

 

EUROGIA+ prepared a booklet to present its achievements between 2008 - 2012

15/04/2013

EUROGIA+, the EUREKA Cluster for low carbon energy technologies, will soon successfully finish its second mandate.

EUROGIA+ covers the entire energy value chain from all forms of primary energy sources (except nuclear), through transportation and distribution, all the way to efficiency in end-use whether industrial or for individual consumers. It also includes tranverse technologies such as materials, IT or manufacturing technologies that support the energy system. This broad scope allowed EUROGIA+ to label 28 successful projects from offshore windfarms to CSS, from smart grids to new materials, with strong participation of SMEs.

Having successfully completed 5 years, EUROGIA+ proposes to continue its activities under the name of EUROGIA2020. The document entitled 'EUROGIA Achievements and Targets  presents the results acquired by EUROGIA+ between 2008 -2012 and outlines vision for EUROGIA2020.

Press Release:

TruEnergy receives Award for “Most Promising Company” at the PwC Accelerator Expo in Luxembourg, 21 March 2013

Brussels, April 2, 2013: TruEnergy today announces to have received the award for “Most Promising Company” during the bi-annual Pricewaterhouse Coopers Accelerator Expo held in Luxembourg on 21 March 2013.

The PwC Accelerator Expo gathered young high-growth companies as well as around 200 investors and key policy makers. 23 companies presented their business plans to the gathering. At the end of the day, TruEnergy was awarded “Most Promising Company” by the conference. More information about the Accelerator can be found on www.pwcaccelerator.com.

"This award is an important milestone for TruEnergy. Our solution is relatively unknown in the energy industry and the award will allow us to attract attention from investors as well as potential business partners”, noted Guus KEDER, TruEnergy’s CEO.

TruEnergy’s decentralised waste to energy solution has the potential to have a profound impact on both the waste as well as the energy landscape. Our solution allows for the local conversion of carbon containing waste streams into clean, useful energy such as heat, electricity or mechanical energy, without producing any harmful emissions. Typical applications include the conversion of hospital waste, the use of Municipal Solid

Waste for district heating systems as well as solutions for island communities.TruEnergy is currently a division of Indra Scientific SA, a Belgian company with a focus on the development of next generation energy solutions.

4th European Conference on Renewable Heating& Cooling 22-23 April 2013 Dublin Ireland

15/01/2013

Combating climate change and ensuring the security of energy supply represent profound challenges for Europe. Adapting the current energy scenario into a truly sustainable one will require realising the full potential of renewable energy sources to satisfy the heating and cooling demand– which accounts for around half of the EU’s final energy consumption.

The European Technology Platform on Renewable Heating & Cooling (RHC-Platform) brings together stakeholders from the biomass, geothermal and solar thermal sector - including the related industries - to define a common strategy for increasing the use of renewable energy technologies for heating and cooling.

EUROGIA+ CLORA Meeting on November 27, 2012

« La recherche au service des énergies bas carbone »

Dans la lignée des objectifs que les chefs d’Etat et de gouvernement se sont fixés à l’horizon 2020, l'Union européenne a mis en place un cadre d'action global en matière d'énergie et de climat. Le Conseil européen a également annoncé un engagement à long terme sur la voie de la décarbonisation, en visant pour l’UE des réductions des émissions de l’ordre de 80 à 95 % d’ici à 2050. L'un des défis majeurs de ce XXIe siècle consiste donc à réinventer le système énergétique selon un modèle à faible intensité carbonique. La technologie et l'utilisation efficace des ressources seront au cœur du défi à relever.

Dans cette perspective, comment la recherche peut-elle favoriser la transition vers un système énergétique bas carbone ? Au-delà de la question des types d’énergie qui devront être utilisés, quels instruments de financement et/ou de coopération doivent être pérennisés ou mis en place au niveau européen ? Enfin et surtout, que nous réservera la future période de programmation 2014-2020 en la matière ?

 Le CLORA organise une journée thématique qui sera l’occasion de répondre à ces questions en abordant différents éléments stratégiques qui structurent  le paysage européen d’aujourd’hui et de demain. La journée rassemblera des acteurs de la commission européenne, du secteur industriel de l’énergie et de la recherche au travers de différentes présentations.

En raison du nombre de places limités, nous vous remercions de bien vouloir remplir le formulaire ci-dessous et de le retourner pour le 21 novembre à elisabeth.lance@clora.eu.
