  • 'Key Tasks for future European Energy R&D' Recommendations for Research and Development by the Strategy Working Group of the Commission's Advisory Group on Energy


In its first report SWOG has carefully analysed eight different promising technology areas. It has identified key research tasks in these areas, where it concludes efforts should be focussed. The technology areas examined in this report are: biomass, cleaner use of coal, fuel cells, hydrogen, nuclear fission, nuclear fusion, solar photovoltaics and wind energy. Other relevant issues will be examined in 2005, such as system integration, energy storage and transport, distributed electricity generation, energy efficiency, crosscutting issues (especially on materials, e.g., including high-temperature durability, superconductivity, nano-science, etc.).
