SETIS - Strategic Energy Technologies Information System

SETIS – Strategic Energy Technologies Information System

SETIS plays a central role in the successful implementation of the SET-Plan by helping to identify energy technology and RD&D objectives, striving to build consensus around the SET-Plan programme, identifying new opportunities, and assessing the effectiveness and efficiency of the SET-Plan in delivering energy and climate change policy goals.

Becoming the world’s first climate-neutral continent by 2050 is the greatest challenge and opportunity of our times. To achieve this, the European Commission presented the European Green Deal, the most ambitious package of measures that should enable European citizens and businesses to benefit from sustainable green transition. Fighting climate change is at the heart of the Green Deal. Living up to the Paris agreement means that Europe should commit to climate neutrality by 2050.

Supported by investments in green technologies, sustainable solutions and new businesses, the Green Deal can be a new EU growth strategy. Energy Union and climate is one of the key political priorities of the Juncker's Commission 2014-2019. The Energy Union strategy is built on the ambition to achieve a fundamental transformation of Europe's energy system in a cost-effective manner. It is based on five mutually-reinforcing and closely interrelated dimensions:

  1. Energy security, solidarity and trust;
  2. A fully integrated European energy market;
  3. Energy efficiency contributing to moderation of the demand;
  4. Decarbonisation of the economy, and
  5. Research, Innovation and Competitiveness.
