Energy transition cannot happen without a large innovative effort and the energy sector requires new and cleaner technologies that are already available. This requires an intelligent and sustainable system that allows for the creation of new innovative business models. In this regard, the study “An overview of innovation in the energy sector for the Sudoe regions”, developed within the framework of the European innovation project TR@NSENER, seeks to offer its view on the state of the art of innovation. With the guidance of leading experts in the field of innovation and, under the coordination of FUNSEAM, the study provides an insight on the state of the art solutions and recommendations for improving the current situation of R&D and innovation, a tool that will undoubtedly generate prosperity and economic growth in companies, sectors and countries.
The TR@NSENER project (European Cooperation Network on Energy Transition in Electricity), co-financed by the Interreg Sudoe Programme through the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF), was set up with the aim of promoting innovation abilities in the Sudoe geographical area (which covers the south of France, Spain and Portugal), guaranteeing an intelligent and sustainable growth and promoting research and technological development.
