Due to different factors as the relocation of work to Asia, the industry contribution to the EU economy is declining. This reflects the necessity to transform the current industry sector into a smarter one. Nevertheless, the European Innovation Scoreboard 2017 shows that SMEs with innovative products or processes have decreased 18 points since 2010 and not all EU countries are at the same level of innovation and smart specialization. Therefore, it is essential to introduce the necessary changes in current policies to get a real smart transformation of the European industry, with the final aim of being more competitive and reaching the target set by the European Commission of boosting manufacturing´s share of GDP from 15% to 20% by 2020. On the other hand, clusters have been proven to have a reticular effect to introduce changes in the European industry. The European Cluster Panorama 2016 shows that wages in more developed clusters are close to 3% higher than in industries not located in such regional hotspots. Thus, changing regional clusters policies will trigger the transformation of the industry in a larger scale. For that reason, the INNO Industry project aims to increase rate of clusters that develop activities to support the transformation towards Industry 4.0 by 2022 through the improvement of regional and national policies.

Until 1990s EU energy consumption was led by industry (35%), but relocation of industries, and integration of efficient technologies achieved to reduce it to 25% until 2010, when it stabilized. Energy consumption in industry is based nearly totally in fossil fuels (Odysee report November 2016), with 35% gas, 32% electricity, 30% coal and oil, which make the sector vulnerable to externalities, specially because EU imports more than 90% of oil, and 66% of gas. EC report of February 2017 “Monitoring progress towards the EU” remarks that energy intensity industry decreased 15% at EU level from 2000 to 2010, but started to grow with speed after 2013. Countries should reduce energy intensity to have independent and cost-effective industry. However, countries show significant differences in their tendencies, with countries with energy intensity close to 85% and growing, others with 40% and decreasing, and some with less than 10%. EC report “Energy use in the EU industry” request harmonization and proper mechanism to boost RES in industry. OBJECTIVES RESINDUSTRY aims to increase the energy independency of the EU industry sector, by decreasing its energy intensity through a higher integration of RES. The long-term objective is to increase the industry competitiveness by decreasing its energy bill, rising their energy independency, thus uncoupling their energy costs from geopolitical externalities. To achieve these long-term strategic objectives, the short-term objectives are to booster RES investment in industry by improving OPs with new policies for RES promotion.
