Created to support the implementation of the SET-Plan, The European Technology and Innovation Platforms (ETIPs) bring together key actors like EU countries, industry and researchers to promote the market uptake of key energy technologies by pooling funding, skills, and research facilities.
The European Strategic Energy Technology Plan (SET Plan) is a key stepping-stone to boost the transition towards a climate neutral energy system through the development of low-carbon technologies in a fast and cost-competitive way. Elena Dufour from EERA explains us how this Plan promotes cooperation among EU countries, research institutions and companies.
