Trinomics and partners kick-off the Energy Transition Expertise Centre

The European Commission launched a project to support the innovation analysis required for the European energy transition.   In an effort to achieve net carbon neutrality by 2050, Europe needs to undergo major transformations in the energy system, increase the energy efficiency and also the share of renewables in energy supply. These changes will require innovations in existing energy technologies, introduction of new ones as well as the development of energy infrastructure for conventional and…

The “study on energy storage – contribution to the security of the electricity supply in Europe” developed for the European Commission – DG Energy can now be downloaded.   The project aimed to assess the role of the different energy storage technologies in the decarbonisation of the EU electricity system, to evaluate their contribution to…

To what extent can hydrogen technologies lead to increased jobs, growth, environmental sustainability and energy security?

Trinomics, together with LBST, have been selected to carry out an assignment commissioned by the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU). The aim of the study is to assess the opportunities in terms of jobs, growth, environmental sustainability and energy security through the inclusion of hydrogen energy technologies in the National Energy &…

Trinomics advises the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy on the subsidy scheme to stimulate CO₂ reducing projects

Trinomics has been selected by the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy to review the options to expand the Stimulation of Sustainable Energy Production subsidy scheme (SDE++). The existing subsidy scheme (SDE+) stimulates the deployment of renewable energy by providing a feed-in premium. This is in line with its objective to increase the share of…

Learn more about the CCUS Projects Network: Sharing knowledge, transforming industry, reducing emissions

The CCUS Projects Network represents and supports major industrial projects under way across Europe in the field of carbon capture and storage (CCS) and carbon capture and utilisation (CCU). The European Commission recognises these technologies as crucial to achieving 2050 climate targets. With support from the Network’s Secretariat, our members will work together to share…

Open public consultation to assess impacts of harmonising smartphone chargers in the EU

The European Commission has launched an open public consultation to collect feedback on different policy measures to promote harmonisation of smartphone chargers. A new Memorandum produced by the industry in 2017 has raised concerns of market fragmentation and problems with charger interoperability, leading to consumer inconvenience and additional waste. Therefore, the Commission wants to explore…

What is the economic impact of EU spending on the ITER fusion energy project?

The European Commission recently published a report prepared by Trinomics in 2018 which examined the economic value-for-money of EU funding of the ITER (International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor) project. This showed that the EU spending through F4E (Fusion for Energy) of more than €2.2 billion to mid-2017, is having a significant beneficial impact on gross value added and jobs. The spending is supporting successful spin-off companies…

Europe relaunches CCUS knowledge exchange network to support industry’s climate action

A Europe-wide knowledge sharing network has received fresh funding from the European Commission to support and inspire major carbon capture, utilisation and storage (CCUS) projects in their efforts to deliver climate action. The revitalised European CCUS Projects Network, which launches its new website today (www.ccusnetwork.eu), will connect industry partners involved in real-life CCUS projects, which…
