EERA’S MISSION

EERA’s official mission is to catalyze European energy research for achieving the Paris Agreement target:

Help streamline regional, national and European research efforts
Deliver research results from basic research to the demonstration phase (TRLs 2 to 5) and ensure efficient transfer to industry and market

EERA is the research pillar in the European Union’s Strategic Energy Technology Plan (SET-Plan), which aims to accelerate the development and deployment of low-carbon technologies.

EERA’S CORE: ITS JOINT PROGRAMMES

EERA’s members work together in currently 17 joint research programmes, the EERA Joint Programmes, which are aligned with the priorities of the SET-Plan. They

Develop research activities along shared research agendas
Cover the whole range of low-carbon energy technologies
Integrate the social and economic aspects of the energy transition
Address the systemic nature of the transition to a zero-carbon society
