ETIP SNET Energy Stories

Introducing ETIP SNET Energy Stories for the Citizen


Since 2014, the strategy of the European Union has been clear: we need to drive a clean, secure and efficient energy transition to face climate and energy challenges. This strategy has been reinforced by the strong commitment of the European Union towards the signature of the landmark Paris agreement. It is also why the Commission proposed in November 2016 an ambitious “Clean Energy for All Europeans” package.

It is in everyone’s long term interest to have a rapid transition towards a cleaner, more sustainable and less carbon intensive energy future. Indeed, many projects across Europe are developing the necessary technologies to make Europe’s transition to greener energy as smooth and effective, as possible.

As stated in the ETIP SNET Vision 2050, serving Europe’s clean energy needs will require major investments for the large-scale deployment of energy conversion and storage devices, the upgrade and extension of the energy networks, and the use of digital solutions. While policy makers, industry and researchers need to lead the way and lay down the foundations for the transition towards a cleaner energy system, the citizen is the fundamental player that will make this transition possible.

It is citizens that have the potential to play a key role in Europe’s energy transition and change the course of current climate change trends. Informed of the latest technological developments, they have the power to select the technologies that will not only meet their energy needs in a more efficient and cost-effective way, but also determine the greening of the energy system as a whole.

The “ETIP SNET Energy Stories” are designed to bring successful applications in energy transition technologies, often developed through public funding, closer to the citizen, highlighting whenever possible the direct benefits of the latest technologies to the energy consumer.
