Prizes to fuse energy and architecture

Horizon 2020’s energy focus received a boost yesterday with the launch of three prizes that will honour the best ideas for integrating renewable power sources into buildings.

The three prizes, announced on 5 July by research commissioner Carlos Moedas, will have a combined budget of €3.25 million.
