In the framework of the SET-Plan the European Commission has initiated action on planning the transition of European energy infrastructure networks and systems towards a low carbon future. This FP7 Support Action is named ATEsT (Analysing Transition Planning and Systemic Energy Planning Tools for the implementation of the Energy Technology Information System). The deployment of low carbon technologies and their supporting infrastructure requires transition planning. The ATEsT project aims to provide a ‘toolbox’ containing the methodologies, procedures and models required to support the decision making process for this planning process. Essential prerequisites to the tools are that they fulfil the requirements for decisionmaking on energy system transition planning in the framework of the SET-Plan, are transparent and accessible to all interested parties as well as broadly accepted between Member States. This Specification Report is the first step in which questions and procedures that are considered of interest by various parties relevant to the implementation of the SET-Plan are identified.
