The objective of this project is to produce an independent analysis
and assessment of the implementation of renewable energy sources
in the Member States of the European Union and the Candidate countries
since the publication of the White Paper on renewable energy sources
in 1997 and to propose a perspective for the period up to 2020.
The results of the project will
- provide input for monitoring the progress of the targets set in the White Paper , the Directive on the promotion of electricity from renewable energy source , and the draft Directive on biofuels
- provide insight into future developments of a green energy market in the European Union and the Candidate countries
The work will include carrying out a comprehensive assessment
of the evolution of renewable energy sources and its contribution
to the electricity, heat and transport sectors in the European Union
and in the Candidate countries since the publication of the
White Paper on renewable energy sources in 1997 as well as the Directive
on the promotion of electricity production from RES in 2001. The
study will give a complete overview of the RES objectives by country
in primary energy terms.
The project results in a set of transparent indicators
- through which the progress of implementation of renewable energy
source up to 2010 can be monitored.
- that provides insight in the possible future implementation of renewable energy sources under different policy developments up to 2020.
