Strategic Energy Technologies Information System

SET-Plan Review (2010-2012)

In the context of the ongoing discussions for enhancing and strengthening the SET-Plan in Horizon 2020, the review of its implementation for the period 2010-2012 was agreed during the December 2012 meeting of the Sherpas of the European Community Steering Group on Strategic Energy Technologies. This was later confirmed by the Members of the Steering Group in their meeting of February 2013.

The review would focus on: (i) the terms of reference of the Steering Group, aiming to reinforce its role, (ii) the function of SETIS, to enable the better monitoring and progress review, and, (iii) the SET-Plan implementation mechanisms, i.e. the 6 European Industrial Initiatives (EIIs), the Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU) and the European Energy Research Alliance (EERA).

The Note below describes the review process, its findings and recommendations, exclusively with regard to the SET-Plan implementation mechanisms.
