DESCRIPTION

RE4Industry will set up and empower a comprehensive network of stakeholders and market actors who will be committed to adopting, implementing or supporting the uptake of renewable energy in the EIIs. The effectiveness of this approach relies on a strong engagement strategy that will count with the support of an Advisory Board and will end up in the creation of a Collaborative Network including Thematic panels, whose objective will be to retrieve and share feedback on technology, processes, industry, sector regulation, markets, and societal perceptions. The knowledge of the experts congregated among this network and the expertise of RE4Industry partners in industrial processes and renewable energies (RE) will make possible the generation of knowledge-transfer material addressing the market needs and creating awareness on the sector for the introduction of renewable energies. This material includes knowledge and vision on coming technologies and options for retrofitting EIIs; roadmaps for the transition of EIIs, policy guidelines for creating an adequate framework, available instruments or schemes supporting this paradigm shift and clear messages to the society, all of them aiming at ensuring that both EIIs and policy makers are confident in shifting to a carbon neutral economy.

OBJETIVES

  • To set a multi-actor collaborative network, involved and actively compromised to gather and identify the needs of the sector, in order to make possible this transition
  • To show the RE technologies with more potential to be utilised by EIIs or integrated in their industrial processes, and mark the path in the short (2030) and long term (2050
  • To identify, visualise and share success stories of EIIs already adopting RE with the innovations
  • To promote the early transition of EIIs by means of a direct accompaniment within companies
  • To achieve a common understanding and vision of the role that EIIs have to play towards 2050 a RE consumers and potential RE promoters
  • To promote a more favorable policy and market framework to allow the competitiveness of RE based EIIs goods
  • To ensure a growing interest and alignment of European society by means of a strong and coordinated communication campaign coherent with EII sector messages

To empower the sector and key organizations through knowledge transfer, strategic positioning and crossborder action
