Over €200 million awarded to Horizon 2020 transport and energy projects


40 transport and energy research projects will receive €208 million in total from the EU's Horizon 2020 programme to make European transport greener, safer and more efficient, as well as to bring to market affordable, cost-effective and resource-efficient energy solutions.

The selected energy projects cover such areas as ocean, wind and geothermal energy, renewable energy sources, photovoltaics, carbon capture and storage, concentrated solar power and biofuels but also social studies that help advance the market uptake.

The awarded transport projects cover air and road transport, as well as cross-cutting priorities for greener urban transport.
