OPET is the Network of Organization for the Promotion of Energy Technologies in European Union and other countries with focus on the development of a market for non-nuclear energy technologies. The network has been established by European Commission (EC) in 1995.
The main objective of the network is to promote the implementation of the new advanced energy technologies and to provide the increasingly comprehensive co-operation in energy research, development and dissemination.
Long-term strategic target of OPET network is to make the European Union (EU) the global leader in the exports of most efficient and research-based technologies for industry and energy sectors. This target can be achieved only if all the activities and efforts of national research centres of the region are co-ordinated and united.
In 1997, EC extended the OPET network by new organizations from Central and Eastern European countries.
