Policy & Research

Some of these policy and research initiatives have been written in the framework of different European Projects to which InnoEnergy contributes. These European Projects are both supported under the FP7 framework and are named Insight-E1 and Maghrenov2. Other initiatives come from research and studies undertaken by InnoEnergy’s thematic leaders and technology experts, together with partners and industry players within the energy sector.

INSIGHT_E is a Think-Tank which aims at informing the European Commission and other energy stakeholders. It supports energy policy at a European level by providing advice on policy options and assessing their potential impact via research and policy initiatives.

2The Maghrenov project aims to support innovation in the Renewable Energy & Energy Efficiency (RE&EE) sectors in the Mediterranean basin. The Consortium brings together partners from Europe and the Maghreb region, whose shared goal is to establish a common Euro-Mediterranean innovation space (EMIS). In this perspective MAGHRENOV addresses three main pillars: Education, Research & Infrastructure and Innovation & Business Creation.
