ERA-Net SES projects shall develop and demonstrate technologies, systems and solutions that make it possible to efficiently provide, host and utilise high shares of renewables, up to and beyond 100% in the local or regional supply by 2030. At the same time, they shall link such local and regional systems to a secure and resilient European energy system, enabling the participation in inter-regional exchange of energy as well as in sharing responsibility to maintain the overall system. Projects are asked to identify and address critical needs within a specific regional/local energy system, and to involve “need-owner(s)” and relevant stakeholders in co-creating solutions.

The call is now open for proposals. Please find more information about the call and application information here.
