Accelerating Clean Energy Innovation


This strategy explicitly serves two core political priorities of the European Union: building a resilient Energy Union with a forward-looking climate change policy – of which it is a core deliverable – and giving a new boost to jobs, growth and investment. At its heart lies a co-ordinated effort to promote and develop enabling technologies, services, business models, and social innovation, thus contributing to growth and employment and making EU industries more competitive in world markets. In doing so, the strategy also will serve as test-bed for future horizontal approaches to boost innovation and competitiveness in the EU.
