15.09.22 Clean Energy Transition Partnership calls 2022

The Clean Energy Transition Partnership (CETP) is a new framework for ERA-NETs that allow for Member States and the European Commission to put up joint calls.

The CETP covers power production technologies, heating & cooling, storage and energy efficiency, divided into pillars, ‘Transition Initiatives’ (TRIs). Ocean energy is part of TRI2: Enhanced zero emission power technologies.
