Low-Carbon Technologies

You are here

Increasing the adoption of low-carbon technologies and applications is useful to tackle the identified needs in the 2 Seas area of reducing the emissions of greenhouse gases, exploiting the potential of new renewable technologies and reinforcing their public acceptance. An increased adoption of low-carbon technologies and applications shall reduce carbon dependency and GHG emissions in the 2 Seas area. Businesses, research institutes, knowledge institutes and public sector and relevant entities and stakeholders that can directly benefit from the improved services and conditions as well as from new economic opportunities will be among the expected beneficiaries.

Bloc 1

Expected Results

In this context and to enhance the uptake of innovative low-carbon technologies, the Programme seeks to contribute to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by:

  • enhancing the uptake of state-of-the art solutions;
  • testing and demonstrating these technologies and applications to pave the way for their wider uptake;
  • promoting a closer, more effective and operational cooperation of businesses, knowledge institutes and public sector

This Specific Objective will be targeting the following sectors shared across the Programme area that have the potential for a high reduction in greenhouse gas emissions:

  • Renewable energy
  • Transport
  • Agriculture
  • Manufacturing industries
  • Building
