What do we want to achieve ?

The EU needs to devise and deploy high-performance, low-carbon technologies to reach its 2020 and 2050 targets for cutting CO2 emissions.
EU policy in this field is set by the Strategic energy technologies plan, which contains measures related to planning, implementation, resources and international cooperation.

Directorate-General for Energy participates in the financing of the horizontal research activities (CORDIS, COST, Eureka, ERA-NET) and the Risk Sharing Financial Facility (RSFF) and shares the management responsibility as in FP6 with Directorate-General Research.
