7th Framework Programme: Building the Europe of Knowledge

The objective of energy research under FP7 is to aid the creation and establishment of the technologies necessary to adapt the current energy system into a more sustainable one, less dependent on imported fuels. Such a system would be based on a diverse mix of energy sources and carriers, with particular attention being paid to lower and non-CO2 emitting energy technologies, combined with enhanced energy efficiency and conservation, to address the pressing challenges of security of supply and climate change, while increasing the competitiveness of Europe's industries.
