Sodium-Nickel-Chloride (Na-NiCl2) batteries have risen as sustainable energy storage systems based on abundant (Na, Ni, Al) and non-critical raw materials. This study offers a general overview of this technology from its initial conceptualization, along with research and development perspectives and areas of use. Applications are for grid storage mainly due to the temperature of operation (275 – 350 °C). There is no critical issue on patent portfolio as the key IP is in the public domain. In addition ...

Implementation of EU customs legislation with regard to areas such as risk management and impact management measures differs across Member States. National systems also diverge in the extent to which they have been updated in line with the UCC.

This in-depth analysis identifies some of those loopholes and proposes measures to close them. An EU focal point would significantly improve the EU’s capacity to investigate and respond strategically ...

Decarbonisation brings both significant challenges and opportunities for coal regions. This study analyses the implementation and impact of Cohesion Policy, including Just Transition Funds, in EU coal regions. Looking retrospectively at the 2014-2020 programming period and forward to the 2021-27 period, the study concludes that Cohesion Policy has made, and is likely to continue to make a real contribution to achieving smarter, greener and more socially connected development of EU coal regions.

The Committee on Budgetary Control (CONT) held a public hearing on 23 January 2023, with the aim to analyse whether the delays with cohesion partnership agreements have affected the level of monitoring and controls of the spending in Member States. The topic of this public hearing was broad and encompassed concepts of two policy areas/instruments that are both unique and very complex in themselves. This briefing provided background information about key concepts and elements (including monitoring ...
