Holistic Integrated SELAS system for Energy production and storage
The European Commission's "Green Deal" aims to make Europe the world's first climate-neutral continent by 2050, and the road sector is a key part of this effort. The ambitious targets that EU has set for increasing the share of renewable energy in the transport sector include among others biofuels, electricity, and hydrogen.
At the same time, the EU is investing in the development of charging infrastructure for electric vehicles and hydrogen refueling stations.
Following these directives and policies, and after four years of intense research activity, SELAS research project is coming to an end, having successfully fulfilled its original objective: the development of a novel modern autonomous system for perpetual energy production and storage, which minimizes the use of energy and mitigates greenhouse gas emissions.
During the current energy crisis, the implementation of the SELAS system is of ultimate importance as it may contribute to covering at least 25% of energy needs and up to 25% savings through the SELAS system while promoting sustainable mobility.
The Centre for Research and Technology Hellas was the coordinator of this European initiative.
The SELAS project was funded by the Single RTDI State Aid Action 2014-2020 "RESEARCH - CREATE - INNOVATE" and had a total duration of 52 months.
