PEDAL secures two Horizon Europe projects in the field of renewable energy sources

PEDAL Consulting was awarded with two new Horizon Europe Grants related to the call “Sustainable, secure and competitive energy supply” (HORIZON-CL5-2021-D3-02) that will be added to the Renewable Energy Portfolio of the company. This brings the total number of proposals won by PEDAL under the Horizon Europe framework to 8this year.

Scope of the Call

The two new Horizon Europe Grants aim to establish a framework where sustainability and educational aspects for renewable energy and fuel technologies are addressed. These Coordination and Support Actions will engage stakeholders at different levels (policymakers, regulators, innovators, industry, trade associations, universities, and local communities) in order to align priorities and needs, while also identifying possibly overlooked challenges.

PEDAL’s Renewable Energy Projects

Thanks to these new grants PEDAL is increasing its portfolio of Renewable Energy Sources (RES) projects. The company has already a solid expertise in the field of RES thanks to three ongoing projects dealing mainly with energy efficiency and air pollutions:

  • W4RES (#Women4RES) is a 3-year-EU-funded project, which aims at scaling-up the involvement of women in the market deployment and uptake of Renewable Heating and Cooling (RHC) solutions via replicable support measures tested and validated across 8 European countries.

  • The LIFE-IP SK Air Quality Improvement project (Enhancing the implementation of Air Quality Management Plans in Slovakia by strengthening capacities and competencies of regional and local authorities and promoting air quality measures) deals with the implementation of specific air quality improvement measures while also supporting educational, communication and monitoring partner activities in the field of air quality and air protection and effective management through the creation of a national network of Air Quality Managers.

  • Sustainable Energy Investing and Financing Activation, the EU-funded SEIFA project will focus on the investing and financing of deep renovation industrial projects, energy supply facilities and energy service companies. Taking an investors-first approach, it will emphasize the environmental impact in terms of decarbonization rate and risk-adjusted rate of return. The project will create a methodology for the sustainable energy investment securitization and a detailed roadmap for the secondary market for sustainable energy. This is expected to result in EUR 500 million for sustainable energy projects provided during the project’s duration.


New Challenges = New Opportunities

We are really looking forward to working on these two newly awarded projects.  The team at PEDAL sees these new challenges ahead as opportunities to grow, to expand its network and build further onto the company track record.
