EUROGIA2020 will be the third mandate of EUROGIA cluster. The second mandate was from July 2008 to June 2013. The EUROGIA+ goal is to support and promote international partnerships devising original projects in low-carbon energy technologies. EUROGIA+ has been created to promote transnational energy related projects (primary energies: Biomass, wind, hydro, solar, waves, geothermal, fossil fuels; and their transformation, transport, distribution and efficient end use) and enabling technologies (CCS, processes, new materials, etc). This initiative started in 2008 and has successfully promoted 120 million euros (as of December 2012) worth of research projects in the EUREKA countries. Between September 2008 and December 2012, 86 project outlines and 37 full project proposals were submitted with the active participation of SMEs (43 % of EUROGIA+ project partners were SMEs). EUROGIA+ is currently formally supported by 17 EUREKA Member States and, as of December 2012, labeled 28 projects, covering a broad cross-section of the EUROGIA+ White Book, from offshore wind to CCS, from smart grids to new materials. EUROGIA2020 will be dedicated to promoting and facilitating the development of low carbon energy technologies. EUROGIA2020 will be led and promoted by a group of European Energy technology firms representing the largest possible markets segments. All energy technologies are included with the exclusion of nuclear. They are supported by the research institutes, public and private, specialised in the accompanying disciplines: geosciences, information technologies,materials, fluid mechanics, marine sciences, electronics, chemical engineering, etc. The period 2013-2020 will be particularly critical in putting Europe on track to achieve its long term climate goal. The 20/20/20 objectives are likely to be achieved but required tapping only in the low hanging fruits (and were helped by a major economic slow-down). Accelerating technology developments in low carbon energy technologies is indispensable both for climate goals in the next period and for positioning Europe for an economic resurgence. As a result, a key goal for Eurogia2020 will be to significantly grow the number of projects. The Eurogia+ Board believes that, during the Eurogia+ mandate, we have only been able to scratch the surface in terms of numbers of companies involved in projects.
