PRESS RELEASE: Launch Horizon 2020 project “ROBINSON”
ROBINSON will focus on developing integrated energy solutions to decarbonise islands
The Horizon 2020 project ROBINSON – Smart integration of local energy sources and innovative storage for flexible, secure and cost-efficient energy supply on industrialized islands – has officially started on 1 October 2020. The project, funded by the EU Research and Innovation Programme Horizon 2020 under Grant Agreement n. 957752, has an overall budget of approximately € 8,4 million and will run for 4 years, between October 2020 and September 2024.
ROBINSON’s main mission is to develop an integrated energy system to help decarbonise islands. Islands often find it challenging to ensure a clean, secure and cost-effective supply of energy. The key is to decrease dependency on fossil fuels and become energy self-sufficient through a mix of renewable energy generation and storage infrastructure.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under GA n. 957752.
