Project description

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.
