Strategic Energy Technology (SET) Plan Progress Report 2023


European Commission


10 November 2023

The Strategic Energy Technology Plan (SET Plan) plays a key role in coordinating European and national R&I agendas for low-carbon energy solutions. As the policy landscape is changing fast, so too must the SET Plan. The Communication proposes a refinement of the SET Plan’s strategic objectives to align them with the new policy framework. It also proposes to elevate the SET Plan’s political status, linking it structurally to the European Research Area (ERA), setting ambitious targets, expanding the technology scope, strengthening its reporting (in which this report plays a part) and establishing task forces for crosscutting issues.
