Priority setting initiative - synergies between European and national energy rtd priorities

Objective



The primary objective of the proposed project PSI: Priority Setting Initiative, is the development and first application of a framework analysis to support processes of energy RTD priority setting in the EU, relating possible RTD support to expected contributions to present EU policy objectives, taking into account possible synergies between national and EU programmes.
This project intends to use updated JOULE PANEL and SENSER project results and combine them with quantitative results from energy modelling activities, to clarify the national energy RTD priorities in the EU member states and the possible synergies and benefits obtained from future EU-level RTD support. Updated SENSER results regarding national energy RTD activities, the market factors driving RTD and the methodologies used for technology characterisation, foresight, evaluation and monitoring will be utilised to develop the framework. Reviews carried out by national teams and consultation of representatives from industries and utility organisations will be used to confront the views with the visions of the different parties involved.
The work content is divided into four principal areas:
Area 1: Analysis of national energy RTD priorities, classification of RTD areas and assessment of RTD needs;
Area 2: Application of priority setting methodologies for the evaluation of benefits;
Area 3: Evaluation of market factors and socio-economic aspects, relevant for RTD measures;
Area 4: Establishment of model inputs and review of modelling results.
The PSI project will also lay a basis for a yearly cycle of updating and evaluation of possible EU energy policy measures and of energy RTD policy measures. Therefore, also a cooperation structure between the project team and the institutes involved in EU modelling activities will be established.
