The Information System for the European Strategic Energy Technology Plan (SET-Plan)
The European Strategic Energy Technology (SET)-Plan aims to transform energy production and use in the EU with the goal of achieving EU worldwide leadership in the production of energy technological solutions capable of delivering EU 2020 and 2050 targets. The move towards a low-carbon Europe requires innovative research, effective strategic planning and an emphasis on timely and appropriate action.
The Joint Research Centre has released the second edition of its annual report on the technology, market and economic aspects of Wind Energy in Europe and the world.
Which energy technology mix allows the EU and national climate and energy targets to be met and at what cost? What cost reductions or performance improvements are needed to make innovative energy technologies competitive? What drives the deployment of different low carbon technologies across the EU?
