Key tasks for future european energy R&D, a first set of recommendations for research and development by the advisory group on energy

Funded under: FP6-SUSTDEV


The objective of this first report is to identify key tasks for energy R&D in order to contribute to the definition of a possible energy RTD strategy, over various time horizons (short, medium, long-term) and to serve as an input for the shaping of future activities in energy research, carried out within the EU, at EC or national levels.
In this context the report addresses the direct (supply, demand) and indirect (economic, environmental, etc) challenges of our energy future. The possible roles of eight energy technology areas have been assessed, and the type of research needed in each area has been identified (Biomass, Coal, Fuel Cells, Hydrogen, Fission, Fusion, PV and Wind).
