The Network team has developed and launched the EU-GCC Clean Energy Virtual Research Lab. It is a virtual lab-space within the Network's website, where Network members are able to share their resources, knowledge, information and material.
You may send us your feedback via email to: firstname.lastname@example.org, noting as subject: Virtual Research Lab.
Sufficient accessible charging infrastructure is a key enabler for the accelerated uptake of electric cars.Publications
CSP systems can supply solar power on-demand through the use of thermal storage, helping to address grid integration challenges related to the variability of solar energy and enabling solar-generated heat to be stored until electricity is needed, even after the sun sets.Publications
Hydrogen is not a primary fuel. It must be produced from water with either fossil or renewable energy sources. Hydrogen can be generated from carbon-neutral biomasses or carbon-free energy sources such as electric, solar, and wind energy.Publications
The combined engine capacity of the new cars we build in just one year is more than the entire electricity generation capacity in the world.Publications
The terms “Smart Energy” and “Smart Energy Systems” have been used to express an approach that reaches broader than the term “Smart grid”.Publications
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is a concept, directly related with these challenges and the objectives of the new European strategy, whereby companies integrate social and environmental objectives in their business activities and contacts with other interested parties.Publications
Cooling of buildings currently represents a considerable fraction of the total energy consumption in the world.Publications
Retrofitting an existing building can often be more cost-effective than building a new facility.Publications
Buildings hold a sizeable share of total energy consumption and therefore make a significant contribution to CO2 emissions. This is made worse by the characteristically inefficient utilisation of energy.Publications
Liberalization of the electricity markets will facilitate competition in generation; it will lead to reflection of all the cost components in the electricity tariffs; it will drive performance improvements and will pave the way for regional power markets interconnection and trading which will further enhance Renewable penetratPublications
