Monitoring and Evaluation of the RES directives implementation in EU27 and policy recommendations for 2020 (RES2020)

The project intends to analyse the present situation regarding the use of renewable energy sources within the EU. It aims to define future options for policies and measures, calculate concrete targets for the contribution that can be achieved by the implementation of the various options available and examine the implications of achieving these targets for the European economy. All renewable energy options are being examined, with systems modelling conducted using TIMES. This modelling system develops an aggregate parameter in order to quantify the impact of a wide range of support schemes. By combining recommendations of optimal mixes, the project hopes to set out recommendations for policy measures.

Results

  • Data was collected on the potential of, and contributions from, the different sectors, i.e. renewable electricity, renewable heating & cooling and biofuels. This required a particularly close look at the biomass/biofuels potential;
  • Extended templates were created for the TIMES model, including enhancements for RES-E and bioenergy;
  • Scenarios and targets for 2020 and beyond under different policy options and framework conditions are being modelled
  • 27 RES policy reviews were developed in a reference document, available on the project website.
  • Models and outcomes should be reviewed by external experts and the EnR renewable energy working group

Lessons learned

  • The definition of the potential depends very much on the assumptions used especially in the case of bioenergy.
  • The PanEuropean model run is essential in order to study the achievement of the the RES targets for the member states.
