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.
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
The JRC has published the 2013 Technology Map of the European Strategic Energy Technology Plan.The 2013 edition of the Strategic Energy Technologies review covers 22 low carbon-technologies, providing information about current and projected market penetration, barriers to large-scale deployment and ongoing RD&D efforts.
