SUSPLAN (PLANning for SUStainability) is a project initiated in 2008 under the European Union’s 7th Framework Programme, and is sponsored by the Directorate General Transport and Energy (DG-TREN). SUSPLAN seeks to bring awareness to and solutions for the coming environmental and energy challenges facing the European community. Over the next three years SUSPLAN will focus on developing strategies, recommendations, and benchmarks for the integration of renewable energy sources (RES) by 2030-2050 within an Europe-wide context. Against this background, SUSPLAN performes a multi-dimensional approach by assembling legislative, policy, business, economic, environmental, and energy professionals together towards addressing the following objectives:

  • Develop grid-based renewable energy sources integrated scenarios for national, regional and European levels;
  • Compare results from each scenario to identify the optimal path for RES integration, in consideration of security issues and economic competitiveness;
  • Establish the institutional capacity and knowledge base on which the subsequent SUSPLAN findings or recommendations are implemented; and
  • Publish SUSPLAN work for decision-makers and related professionals on national and European levels via workshops, reports, and online resources.
