Research and innovation to REPower the EU

REPowerEU is our plan for more affordable, secure and sustainable energy, and R&I activities are contributing to accelerating the clean energy transition for a more affordable, secure and sustainable energy by 2030, in line with the European Green Deal objectives.

Currently, only half of the technologies necessary to achieve full decarbonisation are ready for the market. R&I activities will support new and existing technology solutions to become market-ready, in particular for green hydrogen and solar energy.

The Commission will top-up Horizon Europe investments on the Hydrogen Joint Undertaking to double the number of Hydrogen Valleys by 2025 and will support skills through ERASMUS+ and the Joint Undertaking on Clean Hydrogen, with the launch of a large project to develop skills for the hydrogen economy.

Moreover, the Commission will, among others, develop and implement strategic R&I agendas with Member States on Green Hydrogen and Solar energy technology and secure funding in Horizon Europe.

The EU Mission on Climate-Neutral and Smart Cities will play a crucial role in realising energy savings in buildings.
