Progress Report: Transforming the European Energy System Through Innovation (SETIS)

In September 2015, the SET Plan Communication, tackling the energy system in Europe as a whole and going beyond a ‘technology silos’ concept, translated the Energy Union Research, Innovation and Competitiveness priorities into 10 Actions. Since then, through a widely participatory process, national governments, industry and research actors, involving 154 umbrella organisations that represent 16 700 entities, have set ambitious R&I targets in each of the 10 priorities. The aim of these targets is to accelerate the decarbonisation of the energy systems, by making technologies cost-effective and better-performing.
