SETIS website: improved access to info on low-carbon energy technologies
A new version of the SETIS website has been published, better structured for ease of access to information on particular low carbon technologies. SETIS, the Strategic Energy Technology Information System, is run by the JRC's Institute for Energy in support of the Commission's Strategic Energy Technology Plan (SET Plan).
New features include a toolkit where SETIS' interactive tools, such as the Energy Cost Calculator and the 'bubble chart' on potential energy scenarios can be readily accessed. The site now also better integrates all available items on a particular technology and displays them on a single page. BIOMAP, another newly integrated feature, provides unique information on EU-funded and industrial projects as well as several aspects of biofuels technologies and feedstocks, including legislation, quality specifications and the key stakeholders.
The site will continue to evolve and include news on all low carbon technologies. In the near future, for example, Technology Information Sheets on each technology, a comprehensive library of documentation and a regular e-Newsletter highlighting the latest updates and news on SET-Plan activities will be included.
