The European Commission (EC) has kicked off a second round of awards under its NER300 technology development scheme.

The funding programme – which handed out over €1.2bn ($1.54bn) to 23 innovative renewable energy projects in 16 EU member states as part of its first call in 2011 – is targeting large-scale wind, solar, marine, bioenergy and carbon capture and storage (CCS) technologies.

The wind sector categories focus on offshore turbines ranging from 6MW to 10MW in size, along with floating machines with a rating of 25MW, and ultra-large onshore turbines designed for complex terrains and cold climate regions.

Solar categories include parabolic trough or Fresnel system concentrated solar power technologies, and large-scale concentrator PV, thin-film and CIGS-based power plants with a Log in to read complete article.
