InnovationSeeds – Maximising the value of environmental research

Ensuring market uptake of environmental research remains a key challenge in greening the economy. The InnovationSeeds platform is designed to boost uptake of results and presents findings in a variety of areas, from water and waste management, to energy and resource efficiency.

EU-GUGLE - Sustainable Renovation Models for Smarter Cities

In order to meet its 2020 energy targets, Europe will have to undertake renovation of its building stock, which is currently responsible for 40% of total energy consumption. The EU-GUGLE Smart Cities project will test nearly-zero energy building renovation models at the district level, aiming to renovate 260,000m2 of living space, and achieve 40-80% energy savings per pilot district, whilst increasing the share of renewable energy sources by 25%.

WASTECOSMART – Maximising resource efficiency in European regions

The WASTECOSMART project aims to strengthen and increase the innovation capacity of regional research-driven clusters in resource efficiency through co-operation, research and technological development within the waste sector.

ETFE-MFM – PV integrated ETFE for architectural façade lighting

The ETFE-MFM project will develop, evaluate and demonstrate an ETFE module with integrated photovoltaics, LED technologies and flexible circuits to provide a building module which is suitable for energy harvesting, glazing, lighting and acoustic and thermal insulation.

CENTRAL EUROPE Study on Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy

A Greenovate! Europe Study for the CENTRAL EUROPE Programme has concluded that transnational energy projects substantially assist central European regions to adapt their regional energy policies and highlights some of the most outstanding tools created by the Programme’s projects.

ECO-SEE - Improving the indoor environment of energy efficient buildings

The ECO-SEE project will create natural eco-materials for healthier indoor environments through hygrothermal regulation and the removal of airborne contaminants through both chemical capture and photocatalysis.
