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.
On the 24 February 2021 the European Commission published the Communication “Forging a Climate – resilient Europe – the new EU Strategy on Adaptation to Climate Change” setting out the pathway to prepare for the unavoidable impacts of climate change and become climate resilient by 2050.Read More
