Cluster 5 Climate, Energy and Mobility

Within Cluster 5, research and innovation actions involving climate science aim to establish a better understanding of the causes, evolution, risks and impacts of climate change. The goal is to achieve an advanced knowledge base that will catalyse the transition to a net-zero greenhouse gas emissions economy resilient to the impacts of climate change.

Energy research and innovation is key to satisfying increasing energy demands, while at the same time fighting climate change and enabling equal access to climate friendly energy solutions. To achieve these targets, the European Commission supports research and innovation actions in areas such as renewable energy, batteries, hydrogen, grids and energy-efficient buildings.

The overall ambition is to achieve a climate-neutral, safe, seamless and smart mobility concept for people and goods. Research and innovation actions in this Cluster aim to contribute to a net-zero greenhouse gas emissions mobility scheme while increasing the global competitiveness of the European transport sector.

The drive to Net Zero and the need for all of us to help reduce emissions means that electric vehicles (EVs) need to become completely commonplace. The rate of EV uptake needs to improve, however, and for that to happen, EV batteries need to be cheaper, recharge faster and enable vehicles to go further without needing to be charged.
