The SET-Nav was created to support strategic decision making in Europe’s energy sector, enhancing innovation towards a clean, secure and efficient energy system and it aimed to do so by producing contributions along three dimensions:
- the development of a broad and technically-advanced modelling portfolio for decision making in the energy sector;
- the analysis of the impact of multiple future paths and policies (sustainability, reliability and supply security, global competitiveness and efficiency);
- the development of stakeholder dialogue and dissemination through a series of events on critical SET-Plan themes. The active involvement of stakeholders in a two-way feedback process provided a reality check on the modelling assumptions and approaches and ensured high policy relevance. This ensured policy and market actors alike can navigate effectively through the diverse options available on energy innovation and system transformation.
The project was implemented by a consortium of academic, research and industry partners from Austria, Germany, Norway, France, Spain, Greece, Hungary, Belgium, the United Kingdom and Switzerland.
