Launch: November 2022 – Deadline: Q1 2023
In the context of REPowerEU, the Innovation Fund has announced that it will double its efforts to save energy and scale back dependency on fossil fuels. The European DG Climate Action already organised a few workshops this summer (heat pumps, energy storage, renewable energy, electrolysers & fuel cells). The third Innovation Fund large-scale call will support:
(1) innovative electrification and hydrogen applications in industry;
(2) innovative clean tech manufacturing (such as electrolysers and fuel cells, innovative renewable equipment, energy storage or heat pumps for industrial uses);
(3) mid-sized pilot projects for validating, testing and optimising highly innovative solutions.
This call has also been announced by the Flemish government (energiesparen.be – VEKA).
