Strategic Energy Technologies Information System

European Initiative on Smart Cities


The 2009 report aims at estimating the current research and development (R&D) investments in selected low-carbon energy technologies in the EU-27 funded by the Member States, through the 6th EU Research and Euratom Framework Programmes and by companies with headquarters registered in the EU. Its ultimate objective is to offer a benchmark of the current R&D spending on those technologies to serve as a basis for the comparison with their future research investment needs.
