European Technology Platforms – what are they? „… we see technology platforms as a smart, European way of working together to support industrial competitiveness (…) I have been struck by their enthusiasm and professionalism and their readiness to grasp this opportunity to become powerful actors in making the European Research Area a reality (…) The Commission services will continue to do all they can to facilitate this important and welcome development.” Janez Potocnik European Commissioner for Science and Research ETPs AS THINK & DO TANK
European Technology Platforms – how do they work? Stakeholders, led by industry, come together to agree a common vision for the technology. Stakeholders define a Strategic Research Agenda setting out the necessary objectives for the technology. Stakeholders implement the SRA with the mobilisation of human and financial resources. ETPs AS PPP initiative ?

Topic Resource efficient and clean buildings ProposalObjectivesStrategy/technologyApplication/sector 1 A affordable energy storage management systems for buildings Integration of Phase change materials (PCM), ground storage, flywheels and vanadium batteries Reducing peak demands and total energy requirements both at a building and district level. 2 To optimise indoor air quality and climate conditions whilst minimising overall energy consumption Intelligent and multifunctional windows, multifunctional insulated exterior walls, clean air-conditioning systems and advanced sensors and control systems. The project will commence at laboratory level, but will also consider large-scale tests before implementing real world applications 3 Reduction to CO2-emissions through the achievement of energy savings and the use of renewable energy sources (RES) Transparent solar thermal façade collectors, glazing with integrated PV, façade integrated solar thermal vacuum tube collectors, unglazed opaque façade collectors and a façade integration ventilation All kind of new energy gaining multi- functional components which will be incorporated into the façade of large buildings. These facades will be used for energy conversion 4 Development of an intelligent self-sustained and zero CO2 emission hybrid system for residential/commercial buildings and districts buildings Energy will originate from RES and will flow through hydrogen as an energy carrier to cover its electrical, heating and cooling needs The design, implementation, operation and monitoring of RES (Renewable Energy Sources) such as sun, wind and hydro power at building and district level.
