Brief description and/or other information regarding the project: 
The project ENDORSE aims at a user-driven development of downstream services in renewable energies by exploiting the GMES Core Services (MACC, SAFER and Geoland 2) together with other EO/in-situ data and modelling. It addresses regional services promoting the energy use from sun, wind, and biomass, electricity grid management and building engineering through day lighting in buildings. The consortium has teamed with relevant users to stimulate the development of sustainable and transferable downstream services.ENDORSE will:1) develop and validate pre-market downstream services in collaboration with well-defined end-users by performing R&D activities;2) assess the conditions for self-sustainability of these services through surveys and workshops with end-users;3) disseminate the achievements of the project to foster the use of Core Services data and other EO data by the renewable energies community;4) stimulate the market of downstream services in renewable energies towards the end-users community, and the development of such services by SMEs and other service-oriented companies by demonstrating precursors with documented conditions of sustainability.
