Funding – 2011

Energy efficient and decarbonised systems

The programme ‘Energy efficient and decarbonised systems’ (Systèmes énergétiques efficaces et décarbonés,  SEED) is based on the dynamics initiated by previous ANR programmes:

  • the EESI programme (Energy efficiency and reduction of CO2 emissions for industrial systems), initiated in 2009
  • the CO2 programme (CO2 Capture and Storage), with calls for proposals from 2005 to 2008
  • the Stock-E programme (Innovative Energy Storage) for the thermal aspects
  • the H-PAC programme for the hydrogen production from fossil fuels
  • the HABISOL programme for the energetic equipments of buildings. 

The aim of the SEED programme is to strengthen academic and industrial French communities in the field of energy efficiency and of their capacity to answer to the challenges associated with the climate change and the dependence on fossil fuels.

The programme objectives are :

  • Reduction of primary energy consumption and associated CO2 emissions by increasing energy efficiency in industry and buildings;
  • Valorise heat, whether rejected by industry or generated from renewables, and particularly through storage;
  • Contribute to the development of the CO2 Capture, Storage and Valorisation technologies, in order to remove emissions from industrial sources and  to achieve the stated goals of reducing global emissions.
