Whilst technology development has been a key enabler in the progress of renewables, significant market penetration would have been impossible without appropriate support policies.
The 'Energy – Transparency Centre of Knowledge' (E-TRACK) is a joint initiative agreed between the Directorate General for Energy (DG ENER) and the Joint Research Centre (JRC) of the European Commission for the promotion and enhancement of public participation in the implementation of energy policies. It results from the recognition of the need to offer a reliable source of public information on matters relating to energy policy implementation.
The Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD 2010/31/EU) concerns the residential and the tertiary sector (offices, public buildings, etc.). Member states must apply minimum requirements as regards the energy performance of new and existing buildings. A common calculation methodology should include all the aspects which determine the final and primary energy consumption of the building.
RE2nAF enables geographically based exploratory analysis for off-grid electricity production options in Africa. It overlays population features (settlements), infrastructure (transmission electricity grids, roads), national boundaries together with renewable energy resources. RE2nAF is completely Web based and requires no specialized software or plug-ins.
EU Framework Programmes have given increasing levels of funding to fuel cell and hydrogen technologies.
In Horizon 2020, the current EU Research and Innovation funding programme (2014 -2020), the fuel cell and hydrogen technologies are considered one of the solutions for enabling the EU to reach its ambitious goals in reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and increase of renewables and energy efficiency.
Examples of JRC research making the life of Europe's citizens safer and more secure in the area of nuclear safety. (2009)
The European power grid, one of the largest and most complex systems in the world, is undergoing challenging technological, social and regulatory modifications. Meeting the EU's climate change and energy policy objectives for 2020 and beyond requires a major transformation of our electricity infrastructure. Upgrading and reshaping the existing networks is of paramount importance to foster sustainability, increase energy efficiency, enhance grid security and attain the internal energy market objectives.
