New JRC report: "Scientific Assessment in support of the Materials Roadmap enabling Low Carbon Energy Technologies: Fossil Fuel Energies Sector, including Carbon Capture and Storage"


The Materials Roadmap aims at contributing to strategic decisions on materials research funding at European and Member State levels and is aligned with the priorities of the SET-Plan. It is meant to serve as a guide for developing specific research and development activities in the field of materials for energy applications over the next 10 years. This report provides an in-depth analysis of the state-of-the-art and future challenges for energy technology-related materials and the needs for research activities to support the development of fossil fuel energy technology including Carbon Capture and Storage both for the 2020 and the 2050 market horizons.Publisher: JRC
