The objective of this report is to provide recommendations for long-term R&D priorities for crosscutting EC funded projects in the energy domain. Nineteen JRC experts analysed synergies and issues of the future energy system in following areas:
objectives of Horizon 2020 projects were compared with national and international projects;
key energy technologies for a cost-effective energy transition using the energy system model JRC-EU-TIMES;
development trends of LCEO technologies with regard to their potential to provide grid support services; and
R&D synergies between LCEO technologies to accelerate development and use research budgets efficiently
Key enabling technologies for R&D areas to achieve cost reductions
From today up to 2050, additional investments to transition from a baseline to a low carbon or carbon neutral system are following seven technologies that are in the top-10 of each scenario:
For a zero carbon scenario, following three technologies are to be added:
