The overarching goal of SET-Nav is to support strategic decision making in Europe’s energy sector, enhancing innovation towards a clean, secure and efficient energy system. It prescribes a wide range of analyses in order to better understand the complex links, interactions and interdependencies between the different actors, the available technologies and the impact of the different interventions in the energy system. To meaningfully contribute to the call objectives requires a large modelling portfolio. To ensure focus on the most important aspects and policy relevance, industry partners and stakeholders with varying perspectives should be involved from start to finish.
This leads up to the three key objectives of SET-Nav:
1) Enhance modelling capacities to increase understanding of interactions and interdependencies between actors, technologies and policy interventions in Europe’s energy system.
2) Provide model-based decision support for enhancing energy innovation towards a clean, secure and efficient energy system – through strategic policy analyses tackling relevant technology and policy options, complemented by detailed comparative assessments of energy transformation pathways.
3) Ensure a proper research orientation and a high impact through a continuous and in-depth stakeholder involvement and dialogue.
