Assessment of clean energy technology
Clean energy technologies play an essential role in the transformation of energy systems globally, and for that reason they are supported by European Commission funding programmes such as Horizon 2020. Innovations are developed to improve and strengthen these technologies, whose impact should be assessed. The EU-funded TEIIF project will work to deliver information on the impact of innovation in key clean energy technologies through research, development and demonstration (RD&D). The project will be carried out by the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), which will draw on its existing databases, global membership and analytical experience. Overall, TEIIF will provide policy makers with better knowledge about the impact of their innovation funding and support programmes, help to identify both solidity and gaps and advise future investment plans.
