Invitation to ENERGY-X event


Research needs towards sustainable production of fuels and chemicals

EERA – Rue de Namur 72, Brussels,  September 26th, from 17:30 to 20:00

How do we create a sustainable Europe and help facing the crucial challenge of mitigating climate change? ENERGY-X (www.energy-x.eu) presents its research roadmap, highlighting research needs towards sustainable production of fuels and chemicals – the report is the result of the integrated knowledge of 180+ scientists and a key step to engage the whole community towards building a climate-neutral EU.

Decision-makers and a number of excellent scientists will be contributing to the agenda, including representatives from SUNRISE (http://sunriseaction.com), who will join in the discussion with the audience. ENERGY-X and SUNRISE share common goals for the conversion of renewable energies into alternative fuels and chemicals.

Registration is open until September 20th. Due to limited capacity, we will confirm the registration prior to the event. To register for the event please follow the link: https://dechema.converia.de/frontend/index.php?sub=392

The event is hosted by the European Energy Research Alliance (EERA)

We look forward to meeting you in Brussels.

ENERGY-X and SUNRISE are two out of the six CSA projects that were selected for the Horizon 2020 call “FETFLAG-01-2018” within the research area of Energy, Environment and Climate Change. Both initiatives received €1 million from the European Commission to develop a detailed proposal for a large-scale research initiative over the course of one year, from March 2019 to February 2020.   SUNRISE and ENERGY-X aim to develop sustainable approaches for the storage of renewable energy (solar and wind) through its conversion to fuels and commodity chemicals using abundant molecules such as carbon dioxide, water, and nitrogen. The two projects bring together 30 committed organisations, backed by an initial supporting community of approx. 300 stakeholders from academia, industry, and society.
