This project has three main objectives: 1. Analyse EU and US energy technology road maps, the potential for synergies and opportunities for harmonisation, with the focus on energy R&D aimed at enhanced energy efficiency; 2. Identify joint EU‐US approaches to supporting emerging economies’ own efforts to embrace energy efficient and low carbon technologies; 3. Set the above in the context of the current global economic climate, and the respective EU, US and emerging countries’ actions for economic revival. The consortium is led by University College Dublin and composed of CEPS, Sustainable Energy Ireland, and University of California, Berkeley.
