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.

"Since 2008, the SET Plan has been the core instrument helping align European and national clean energy research priorities, turning synergies into concrete projects and outcomes, bringing solutions from the lab to the market, and supporting our clean energy ecosystem. The SET Plan, in synergy with the existing funding and regulatory tools, can be a game changer in delivering the necessary innovation to achieve the European Green Deal 2030 & 2050 targets and in establishing the ERA for the clean energy transition."

What is the SET Plan?

The (SET) Plan aims to achieve the EU’s energy and climate goals and make Europe a global leader in clean energy and energy efficiency technologies. 

The plan does this by: 

  • helping to coordinate national research and innovation (R&I) activities in developing low-carbon energy among EU Member States and 4 associated countries (Norway, Iceland, Turkey and Switzerland)  
  • aligning national R&I programmes with its agenda.   

 

It is becoming more crucial that public and private investments are channelled towards the technologies needed for the energy transition. The SET Plan steps up cooperation between governments, industry and research institutes to leverage the use of R&I funding schemes for clean energy.  

The Clean Energy Transition Technologies and Innovations Report and the national energy and climate plans set out the policies and financial measures that EU countries will take to reach the climate and energy targets.  

The R&I community has been asked to cooperate so as to ensure: 

  • the upscaling of these technologies 
  • that there is rapid and efficient uptake in the market, helped by innovative regulatory and financial schemes.

"The SET Plan is the European framework for gathering governments, key industrial players, and the best research institutes across Europe to ensure that Research & Innovation programmes in clean energy technologies respond to the challenges we face – both in terms of recovery and in terms of the increased ambition of the EU Green Deal."
