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 7th Conference of the European Strategic Energy Technology Plan (SET Plan), organized by ENEA under the auspices of the Italian Presidency of the Council of the EU, will be held on the 10-11 December in Rome, at the Auditorium Antonianum.
The JRC has published a report looking at the marine energy technology innovation landscape from the European perspective. The study looks at the development and uptake of innovation activities in the field of marine energy, with particular focus on the innovation and development activities of wave and tidal energy.
A Materials Information System (MIS) has been developed that provides the user with all the necessary background information on materials used in low-carbon energy technologies, as well as a comprehensive library of relevant references and literature. The goal of MIS, is to provide information about the materials used in the SET-Plan technologies
