New technologies will be developed in Europe in order to promote a greater integration of renewable energy sources

Description
12 institutions from six European countries have come together in order to develop technologies capable of improving the performance of forecasting systems for the production of renewable energy by at least 15%, and thus contributing to an increase of the integration of production of these energy sources. The impact on society? A reduction on CO2 emissions and an impact on the performance of power grids and on electricity market prices.

School Ship Sagres is being equipped to study atmospheric electricity and climate changes

Description
These data will be collected throughout the circumnavigation, which the vessel will make starting from 5 January of 2020.What are the goals?On the one hand, increasing the climate knowledge by studying the effects of climate changes on the planet's electrical circuit, thus allowing a better prediction of the climate evolution.On the other hand, assessing the health of the ocean, which has a significant global impact on sectors such as fisheries, marine activities or even energy, by collecting biological samples (fishes) for further laboratory analysis
