Conference RES-INTEGRATION and RE-SHAPING: Shaping an effective and efficient European renewable energy market

7 December 2011 in Brussels

Invitation to the final conference of the projects RES-INTEGRATION and RE-SHAPING: Shaping an effective and efficient European renewable energy market carried out on behalf of the European Commission (DG ENER / EACI).

The RES-INTEGRATION project will be presented in the morning. It assesses Member States' implementation of Article 16 of the renewable energy Directive 2009/28/EC, requiring changes to the management and development of the electricity grid - including guaranteed transmission rights, priority access, dispatching, charging regimes and grid development obligations. The project examines the situation in the Member States, their action plans and makes recommendations on how to best comply with the Article's requirements.

The afternoon session will present the results of the RE-SHAPING project, which has the objective of assisting Member State governments in the implementation of the renewable energy directive. It updates and creates new indicators of policy effectiveness, evaluates renewable energy policies and makes recommendations on how to improve support schemes in particular. It also provides best practice and proposes innovative instruments to increase policy effectiveness, efficiency and compatibility with the internal market and emissions trading policies.

Both projects will provide a great deal of detailed information on the situation of the renewable energy sector in each Member State, together with recommendations for improvements. As such, the conference is timely and the reports that will be finalised after the conference can serve as useful reference material.
