Fossil-free fuels and chemicals for a climate-neutral Europe



Our Roots

SUNERGY aims at becoming a large European Research and Innovation initiative working towards the conversion and storage of renewable energy into fossil-free fuels and chemicals.

Our current enterprise unites and builds on two initiatives funded under Horizon 2020: SUNRISE and ENERGY-X. They were selected by the European Commission to prepare for FET Flagship status, a billion-euro programme which identifies "visionary, science-driven, large-scale research initiatives addressing grand scientific and technological challenges".

SUNER-C Kicks Off!

Proposal submitted to increase community engagement

We informed few months ago that SUNERGY submitted a proposal for the Horizon Europe CSA (Coordination and Support Action) 'Creation of an innovation community for solar fuels and chemicals'. We are now very happy to publicly announce that the proposal has been selected for funding and that SUNER-C starts from June 1st 2022 for 3 years. The consortium for this proposal consists of 30 industry, academic, societal and network organizations in 12 countries. The consortium’s wide coverage will allow you to more easily connect with colleagues in your country and across Europe.


This CSA will enable SUNERGY to create an innovation ecosystem for solar fuels and chemicals, develop a roadmap and prepare for a large-scale research and innovation initiative on solar fuels and chemicals.


For you as a supporter, this CSA would allow you to more easily connect to and collaborate with colleagues from around Europe, join interesting events, and contribute to the shared roadmap and its supporting strategies.
