Next generation of renewable energy technologies

Type d'action : HORIZON Research and Innovation Actions
Nombre d'étapes : Single stage
Date d'ouverture : 12 septembre 2023
Date de clôture : 16 janvier 2024 17:00
Budget : €27 000 000
Call : Sustainable, secure and competitive energy supply
Call Identifier : HORIZON-CL5-2024-D3-01
Description :


Project results are expected to contribute to all of the following expected outcomes:

  • Available breakthrough and game changing renewable energy technologies enabling a faster transition to a net-zero greenhouse gas emissions EU economy by 2050.
  • Knowledge and scientific proofs of the technological feasibility of the concept including the environmental, social and economic benefits to contribute to R&I strategy and policy forecast.
  • Establishing a solid long term dependable European innovation base.


The proposal is expected to address high-risk/high return technology developments for game changing renewable energy technologies. It could cover catalyst development, dedicated renewable energy storage systems, integration of renewable energy technologies into a single energy generation system, heating & cooling systems, fuels production systems, solar driven chemical processes, hybrid electricity generation solutions between different renewable energy sources, direct utilization of renewable energy sources.

The following areas are excluded from the scope of the topic as they fall within the scope of partnerships or other calls:

  • Hydrogen production through electrolysers.
  • Fuel cells.
  • Material research is covered under cluster 4 topics.
  • Batteries as being covered in Destination 2.

The proposal is expected to validate its concept to TRL 3 or TRL 4 through a robust research methodology and activities. It should establish the technological feasibility of its concept, consider transfer developments in sectors other than energy whenever relevant, as they may provide ideas, experiences, technology contributions, knowledge, new approaches, innovative adapted materials for energy and skills.

Whenever the direct use of biogenic waste is considered, it will be taken into account from the design stage.

In developing its concept, the proposal is expected to address the following related aspects: lower environmental impact, minimising the impacts on biodiversity and protected species and habitats, better resource efficiency (materials, geographical footprints, water, etc…), issues related to social acceptability or resistance to new energy technologies, related socioeconomic and livelihood issues. Comparison with current commercial renewable energy technologies and/or solutions is expected. Impacts will be assessed through a quantified based Life Cycle Analysis. Considerations should be given to the regulatory frameworks for their adequate integration.

Specific Topic Conditions:

Activities are expected to achieve TRL 3-4 by the end of the project – see General Annex B.
