Energy Transition: EUROGIA2020, a tool to achieve low carbon goals


Energy Transition: EUROGIA2020, a tool to achieve low carbon energy goals

EUROGIA2020, the EUREKA Cluster for low carbon energy technologies, is organizing an information day and brokerage event with support of the French Public Authorities  on December 10, 2014 in Paris at IPGP (The institute of Earth Physics of Paris).

This event brings together high level speakers from GdFSuez, French Administration and funding agencies to assess how innovation can help achieve Energy Transition in France. The new bill sets ambitious targets to reduce the overall energy consumption, while increasing the role of renewables. EUROGIA2020 with its proven experience in fostering innovative collaborative projects can help Member States meet objectives which were set at EU and national levels. The conference will be followed with a brokerage session where energy project ideas searching for partners are presented.

EUROGIA2020 supports and promotes international partnerships developing innovative projects in low carbon energy technologies. Between year 2008- 2013, EUROGIA labelled 29 projects worth 200 M Euros and enabled their access to national funding in 41 EUREKA Member Countries.

EUROGIA2020 & RHC Platform Joint Event


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

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


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


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.
