Support and coordination of the European Technology and Innovation Platform on Wind Energy (ETIPWind) and the SET-Plan Implementation Working Group on Offshore Wind (IWG OW).

Project description

Support and coordination for R&I in wind energy

Wind energy is fundamental for a sustainable and reliable European energy system. The European Commission expects wind energy to meet 30 % of electricity demand by 2030 and 50 % by 2050. The EU will therefore need clear guidance on the wind energy R&I challenges. The European Technology and Innovation Platform on Wind Energy (ETIPWind) was established in 2016 with the Commission’s support to inform policies. The EU-funded SETIPWind project will support the activities of the ETIPWind and the SET Plan Implementation Working Group on Offshore Wind (IWG OW) so that they will continue guiding R&I with clearly formulated recommendations and in a timely fashion. The project will also support cohesion and knowledge sharing and establish a joint Secretariat for the ETIPWind and the IWG OW.

Objective

The EU has committed to becoming the first climate neutral continent by 2050 and counts on wind energy to become the backbone of a sustainable and reliable European energy system. The European Commission expects wind energy to meet 30% of electricity demand by 2030 and 50% by 2050, from 16% today. To deliver on these ambitions the EU will need clear guidance on the wind energy Research & Innovation challenges and how to address them by 2030 and 2050.

ETIPWind was established in 2016 by WindEurope with the support from the European Commission to bring stakeholders together to inform policymaking on the priority areas of Research & Innovation that will contribute to meet the EU’s climate and energy goals.

This project, SETIPWind, will strengthen the activities of the European Technology and Innovation Platform on Wind Energy (ETIPWind) and the SET Plan Implementation Working Group on Offshore Wind (IWG OW) so they continue providing guidance on R&I through clearly formulated recommendations in a timely fashion. It will also foster cohesion and knowledge sharing among all energy research stakeholders to ensure robust implementation of the EU’s SET-Plan Implementation Plans.

The project will achieve these objectives by establishing a joint Secretariat for both ETIPWind and the IWG OW that closely coordinates their activities, creating a joint work programme centred on EU energy and R&I policy-setting milestones, and offering more opportunities for stakeholder experts to come together and provide their feedback on the policy-making processes. The project will also connect the ETIPWind and IWG OW more closely with the other ETIPs and SET Plan stakeholder groups and develop joint positions, reports, and dissemination activities.
