The article addresses the need for private and public sectors to invest on research about energy technologies in order to reach climate change targets. The European Commission's Strategic Energy Technology (Set) initiative included an investment of 50 billion euros over the next ten years in fields like carbon capture and storage (CCS), renewable energy and nuclear power. According to the European Commission, CCS and solar technologies will need more money in order to meet the initiative's targets.
