This Commentary presents preliminary key messages and recommendations of the CEPS Task Force on “The Strategic Energy Technology Plan: From Concept to Practice”, Taking the form of an ‘open letter”, it aims to express the views of the Task Force members in the run-up to the meeting of the Energy and Innovation European Council on 4 February 2011. It argues that a successful innovation policy needs an efficient Strategic Energy Technology (SET) Plan. Otherwise, the members of the Task Force warn that the SET Plan risks becoming simply another toothless EU policy.
The Task Force is chaired by Lars-Erik Liljelund, Chief Executive Officer, Foundation for Strategic Environmental Research (MISTRA) of Sweden, and CEPS researchers Christian Egenhofer, Jorge Núñez Ferrer and Monica Alessi serve as rapporteurs.
