Publication of the SET Plan Progress Report 2022
Since its launch in 2007, the SET Plan has become the reference framework for addressing clean energy research and innovation developments in Europe. Through the work of its 14 Implementation Working Groups, it has been successful in setting common EU, national and industrial research priorities on low-carbon energy to influence R&I agendas, and has leveraged much-needed resources at both European and national level. The SET Plan was last revised in 2015, but since then, much has changed.
The introduction of the European Green Deal in 2019 and its associated Climate Law, adopted in 2021, then the REPowerEU Plan this year, have set ambitious greenhouse gas emissions reduction targets for 2030 and 2050. This year’s progress report is designed to support the ‘revamp’ of the SET Plan Implementation Plan by bringing together the views of stakeholders on possible ways forward for the SET Plan. Some consensus can already be identified on issues such as thematic, cross-cutting challenges, the engagement of SET Plan countries and visibility.
ECTP members are in particular concerned by the Implementation Working Group #5, dedicated to Energy efficiency and related solutions for the Built Environment.
