Energy scientific and technological indicators and references

Funded under: FP6-SUSTDEV


Energy Scientific and Technological Indicators are needed to monitor the status of research and technological development (state of the art), related research and industrial evolution and to define realistic targets or objectives for future activities. Such indicators and data, when properly defined and validated, are a useful tool for policy drivers, decision-makers, programme managers, potential investors, bankers, technology end-users, etc. They record the complex links between energy use, energy technologies, industrial developments, market needs and socio-economic activities. This study identifies and justifies a preliminary set of critical indicators and references of a scientific, technological or techno-economic nature. These indicators are based on the present state of the art and characterise the major bottlenecks to be overcome or the main challenges to be addressed by each technology in its future development
