Work Programme 2010, Cooperation, Theme 5: Energy European Commission C(2009) 5893 of 29 July 2009)

Funded under: FP7-ENERGY


Energy is a pervasive issue which concerns everybody's daily life, is of major importance to Europe's economic well being and competitiveness while having a major environmental impact, the least not being on the question of climate change and global warning. Energy research priories are therefore set up with these concerns in the background.
The European Strategic Energy Technology Plan (SET-Plan) aims to contribute to the creation of the European Research Area in the domain of Energy. It has been strongly endorsed by Council and Parliament, both in terms of the proposed approach and the key challenges identified. In the short term, the FP7 Energy Work Programme is the main instrument we have at our disposal to support the implementation of the SET-Plan. The work programme 2010 therefore reinforces the focus on the key challenges of the SET-Plan, in particular anticipating the objectives of the embryonic European Industrial Initiatives and the European Energy Research Alliance.
It foresees in particular the research needed in support of large scale demonstration programmes in the domain of CCS and on electricity grids following the Smart Grids concept. In the renewable energy areas, topics cover activities foreseen within the three Industrial Initiatives: Solar Europe (both concentrated solar and PV), Wind (offshore) and Bioenergy.
