SETIS - SET Plan information system

The SET Plan is the technology pillar of the EU's energy and climate policy

The SET Plan, adopted by the European Union in 2008, is a first step to establish an energy technology policy for Europe. It is the principal decision-making support tool for European energy policy, with a goal of:

  • Accelerating knowledge development, technology transfer and up-take;
  • Maintaining EU industrial leadership on low-carbon energy technologies;
  • Fostering science for transforming energy technologies to achieve the 2020 Energy and Climate Change goals;
  • Contributing to the worldwide transition to a low carbon economy by 2050.

What is SETIS?

The Strategic Energy Technology Information System (SETIS) website is the open-access information, knowledge management and dissemination system for the European strategic energy technology plan (SET Plan). It is managed by the Joint Research Centre (JRC), European Commission.  

SETIS helps implement the SET Plan and accounts for its progress and achievements through the monitoring progress report - released yearly during the SET Plan Conference.
