Secure, clean and efficient energy

giornata energia 16 dicembreThe Energy Challenge is designed to support the transition to a reliable, sustainable and competitive energy system. The EU is aiming to progressively decrease greenhouse gases consumption of 20% by 2020.


To make the transition to a competitive energy system, we need to overcome a number of challenges, such as increasingly scarce resources, growing energy needs and climate change.









  • Reducing energy consumption and carbon footprint
  • Low-cost, low-carbon electricity supply
  • Alternative fuels and mobile energy sources
  • A single, smart European electricity grid
  • New knowledge and technologies
  • Robust decision making and public engagement
  • Market uptake of energy and ICT innovation.
