CLUSTER 5 – CLIMATE, ENERGY, MOBILITY | Destination #4: Efficient, sustainable, and inclusive use of energy

March 8, 2023

Destination #4 of Cluster Mobility is referred to as the Efficient, sustainable and inclusive use of energy”. Under the umbrella of this Cluster of Mobility, there are in total six distinct destinations or impacts, each one related to a specific area of the broad issue of mobility. Here we will analyze destination #4.

Where does destination #4 aim at?

  1. Fostering demand-side solutions and improving energy efficiency
  2. Research and innovation aiming for cost-effective energy renovation of buildings and more synergetic interactions of buildings with the energy system and between buildings
  3. Research and innovation with the aim to scale the positive impacts from the building level to the much more complex district and city level
  4. Optimisation of decarbonised energy, with a focus on the integration of renewable and low-carbon, and low-emission energy sources. 

Which Horizon calls address destination #4?

Each cluster of Horizon Europe is addressed by the so-called “calls”, a kind of announcement from the European Commission to all stakeholders, and to everyone interested in applying for funding for a project or a research idea.

Calls are also announced for each destination of each cluster. Thus, this destination #4  contributes directly to the Strategic Plan’s Key Strategic Orientation: 1) “Making Europe the first digitally-enabled circular, climate-neutral, and sustainable economy through the transformation of its mobility, energy, construction, and production system”, 2) “Promoting an open strategic autonomy by leading the development of key digital, enabling and emerging technologies, sectors, and value chains to accelerate and steer the digital and green transitions through human-centered technologies and innovations”. The expected impact of this destination is to contribute to an “Efficient and sustainable use of energy, accessible for all is ensured through a clean energy system and a just transition”, notably through 1) “Technological and socio-economic breakthroughs for achieving climate neutrality and the transition to zero pollution of the building stock by 2050, based on inclusive and people-centric R&I”, and 2)

Increased energy efficiency in industry and reducing industry’s Greenhouse Gas (GHG) and air pollutant emissions through recovery, upgrade and/or conversion of industrial excess (waste) heat and through electrification of heat generation”. 

Specifically, the calls under destination #4, Efficient, sustainable, and inclusive use of energy, are 4 and each one has several topics:

Call – Efficient, sustainable, and inclusive energy use. This call opens on 7 December 2023 and the deadline for submitting proposals is on 18 April 2024. 

Call – Efficient, sustainable, and inclusive energy use. This call opens on 4 May 2023 and the deadline for submitting proposals is on 5 September 2023.

Call – Efficient, sustainable, and inclusive energy use. This call opens on 7 December 2023 and the deadline for submitting proposals is on 18 April 2024.  

Call – Efficient, sustainable, and inclusive energy use. This call opens on 7 May 2024 and the deadline for submitting proposals is on 5 September 2024.  

Calls for proposals are published on the Funding and Tenders portal, where applicants can find the scope of funded activities and relevant details.
