Das Programm des Projekts "NEST, Network for Energy Sustainable Technologies", das in das PE-Programm "Grüne Energien für die Zukunft" eingebettet ist, zielt darauf ab, die wichtigsten Laboratorien und universitären Forschungsgruppen sowie die wichtigsten nationalen Forschungseinrichtungen miteinander zu verbinden und interdisziplinäre Kompetenzen zu identifizieren, um Technologien für die Umwandlung und Nutzung erneuerbarer Energiequellen zu entwickeln, die sowohl aus ökologischer als auch aus sozialer Sicht nachhaltig und für die Energieerzeugung und -verteilung widerstandsfähig sein sollen, während sie gleichzeitig weniger den Risiken ausgesetzt sind, die sich aus dem derzeitigen Versorgungssystem mit fossilen Brennstoffen, insbesondere Erdöl und Erdgas, ergeben.

The objectives of energy transition towards the carbon neutrality that our country aims to reach by 2050, following national and EU programs, require to follow a program of rapid reduction in the consumption of fossil fuels in the coming years with the full adoption of renewable energy sources, in civil, industrial, and transport sectors. These objectives can be achieved through a strong interaction among Universities, Research centers, and industrial system operating in the energy field through large groups as well as SMEs, start-ups and spin-offs which are all extraordinary sources of innovation. The challenges of the energy transition cannot to be faced only by the present technologies but need the development of new knowledge that stimulates the development of new technologies.
​​​​​​​The ambition is to build a competent Italian leadership, strongly integrated with the territory and companies and capable of supporting the future development towards sustainable and decarbonized energy production and distribution.
​​​​​​​The project NEST is totally interconnected with the NextgenerationEu Program, Horizon Europe Cluster 5: Climate, Energy and Mobility and, in particular, with those Italian actions of the PNRR that aim to boost the uptake of renewable energy with specific measures on several levels: investing in new green energy technologies, green hydrogen and sustainable biofuels, interoperability and smart integration in the different sectors, new, environmentally friendly materials with low carbon footprint. Within this framework the network created by NEST will act as an innovative excellence ecosystem able to promote innovation through the systematic connection of the energy research with the whole productive system. The network NEST has the primary mission to build a competent Italian leadership, consistent with existing excellence of the partners and affiliates, capable of supporting the growth of new generation of energy technologies, researchers and research infrastructures for a future sustainable and resilient energy sector.
