Towards the Decarbonisation of the Energy Intensive Sector: Presenting RE4Industry Project

Short Introductive summary

The EU has started a progressive decarbonisation with the aim to become carbon neutral by 2050. Energy Intensive Industries (EII) are expected to play an important role in this transition as they represent almost a quarter of the final energy consumption, but a clear long-term vision and strategy is required in order to remain competitive while contributing to the decarbonization targets of the EU. The H2020 project RE4Industry, officially launched on 14th September 2020, will be working in the following 36 months on determining the most suitable, economically and technologically feasible renewable solutions for EIIs in the short-term (2030) and long-term (2050) visions, together with the definition of an action plan for industrial decarbonisation pointing at transforming the EU industrial landscape into a large market niche for the uptake of RE.
