Energy and Environment

The optimal management of energy resources is a big wager that requires implementation of a long-term energy strategy, with a view to gradually reduce the energy dependence on third countries, pass to the era of energy producing low to zero carbon dioxide emissions and decrease energy waste.

The submitted proposals should among others focus on:

  • Innovating approaches in exploiting all available types of renewable energy sources in Greece (wind, solar, biomass, hydropower, geothermal, waste, etc.).
  • Improving the transmission and distribution of electrical power (i.e. grid efficiency). 
  • Applying new methods and technologies for improving the storage capacity, including batteries, of produced energy.
  • Enhancing energy efficiency of households, through the usage of smart electrical and other energy applications.
  • The innovative use of information and communications technology and its application to the management of energy systems for increasing energy efficiency
