The “Implementing the SET Plan – 2020” progress report is released in occasion of the 14th SET Plan conference in Berlin, organised in cooperation with the German Presidency of the Council of the EU. The theme of the conference is focussed on the contribution of the SET Plan to the more ambitious energy and climate targets for 2030 and 2050 in the context of the European Green Deal.
The SETIS report presents the state of implementation of the SET Plan by mid-2020, and its role in the delivery of the European Green Deal, through commonly agreed R&I priorities and targets for clean energy solutions. The alignment of national R&I programmes with our common SET Plan agenda will make Europe a global leader of clean energy and energy efficiency technologies and thus contribute to EU’s growth strategy.
The COVID-19 pandemic presents critical challenges, and many opportunities for the EU to boost the recovery towards a greener, more digital and more resilient Europe through the Next Generation EU initiative, and the SET Plan will deliver the necessary R&I agenda.
The second edition of the SETIS Report describes how the SET Plan activities of the Implementation Working Groups (IWGs) are adjusted to align with the European Green Deal and the Next Generation EU.
The information presented in this report relies exclusively on the inputs that SETIS received from the IWGs. A commonly agreed monitoring methodology was developed during a co-creation workshop organized by SETIS in February 2020 in cooperation with the IWGs-Chairs.
The results stemming from this publication will contribute to the update of the SET Plan.
