Decarbonising Europe
through industrial value chains

A carbon neutral Europe by 2050

EIT InnoEnergy is spearheading the decarbonisation of Europe by leading industrial value chains in three strategic sectors: battery storage, green hydrogen and solar photovoltaics.


These industrial initiatives play a fundamental role in progressing the European Commissions’ updated Industrial Strategy, which forges a pathway for industry to become more sustainable, digital, competitive and resilient.


By supporting large industrial projects, we are directly impacting the energy trilemma: reducing the cost of energy, limiting greenhouse emissions and increasing availability and security – all of which ultimately play a fundamental role in realising our goal of a carbon neutral Europe by 2050.

The real industrial revolution is starting now
The real industrial revolution is starting now – provided we make the right investments in key technologies and set the right framework conditions.

Strategic industrial value chains for Europe
“Batteries are strategic but we still rely on batteries that are entirely or partly made abroad. We decided to join forces with Member States and the private sector. And so the EBA was born. Soon the most innovative batteries will be Made in Europe”
