The Clean Energy Transition Partnership (CETP) is a transnational initiative on joint Research, Technological Development and Innovation (RTDI) programming to boost and accelerate the energy transition, building upon regional and national RTDI funding programmes.

GEORG is taking an active part in developing the partnership in cooperation with Orkustofnun and the GEOTHERMICA network.  Furthermore, GEORG will manage the office for one of the partnership’s Transition initiatives, notably Heating and Cooling. The CETP aims to contribute to the EU’s goal of becoming the first climate-neutral continent by 2050 by pooling national and regional RDTI funding for various technologies and system solutions required to make the transition. In that sense, the CETP establishes seven Transition Initiatives (TRIs) to work together on organising target group-oriented stakeholder management and communication in the field, developing thematic modules for the annual joint calls and implementing accompanying activities on knowledge management and maximising impact.

TRI 4: Efficient zero emission Heating and Cooling Solutions

Participating Icelandic organisations

Applicants have to follow the general guidelines of the Technology Development Fund, where their contribution can vary – further information on Icelandic-based applicants can join research consortia on equal terms with applicants from the EU Member States and other Associated Partners.

General Timeline

The CETP enables 70 national and regional RTDI programme owners and managers from 32 countries to align their priorities, pool national budgets of 210 Mill EUR for two joint calls in 2022 and 2023, and implement annual joint calls from 2022 to 2027.
