Director General Energy to speak at the ENERGY-X event

September 26,  (17:30 – 20:15)

Ditte Juul Jørgensen, Director General at DG Energy, European Commission, will speak at the ENERGY-X event on September 26, 17:30 – 20:15.

At the event, ENERGY-X will present its research roadmap, highlighting research needs towards sustainable production of fuels and chemicals and how it can contribute to Europe´s energy objectives and to mitigate climate change. The ENERGY-X research roadmap is the result of the integrated knowledge of 180+ scientists and a key step to engage the whole community towards building a climate-neutral EU. The full report will be available prior to the event at:

Peter Dröll, Director “Prosperity”, and Søren Bøwadt, Deputy Head of Unit for “Materials for tomorrow”, DG Research & Innovation, will share their views and participate in the discussion with the audience, together with scientists from the ENERGY-X  and SUNRISE projects.

Register by Monday 23 September at:

Please note that the event will start at 17.30. Programme attached.

The event is hosted by:
European Energy Research Alliance (EERA)
Rue de Namur 72 – 1000, Brussels

ENERGY-X and SUNRISE are two H2020 ongoing projects for the development of large scale research initiatives in energy, environment and climate change. They share goals for the conversion of renewable energies into alternative fuels and chemicals and have recently joined efforts in a common initiative, SUNERGY.

Please also note that ENERGY-X representatives will contribute to the session “Materials enabling carbon neutrality” at the European R&I days that will take place on September 24 in Brussels.

We look forward to meeting you in Brussels.

The ENERGY-X project management team
ENERGY-X and SUNRISE are two out of the six CSA projects that were selected for the Horizon 2020 call “FETFLAG-01-2018” within the research area of Energy, Environment and Climate Change. Both initiatives received €1 million from the European Commission to develop a proposal for a large-scale research initiative over the course of one year, from March 2019 to February 2020. SUNRISE and ENERGY-X aim to develop sustainable approaches for the storage of renewable energy (solar and wind) through its conversion to fuels and commodity chemicals using abundant molecules such as carbon dioxide, water and nitrogen. The two projects bring together 30 committed organisations, backed by an initial supporting community of approx. 300 stakeholders from academia, industry and society.
