Open letter to EU Heads of State: fund the SET Plan
The SET Plan, the Strategic Energy Technology Plan, refers to the EU's intention to remain a leader in innovative low-carbon technology, including renewable energy.
The 3-paragraph letter says, "In order to fulfil its potential and unlock private investment, the SET Plan needs frontloaded public support. The European Council endorsed the SET Plan in March 2008. We now urge the Council and President to re-affirm its high priority in the implementation of the EU2020 Strategy and forthcoming budget discussions".
