Project description

REPAP2020 is a European research and dissemination project which comprises a consortium of 13 partners led by EREC. The specific objective of REPAP2020 is to facilitate the process of implementation of the RES Directive on a national level. The main target group of REPAP2020 are Parliamentarians and Civil Servants in national administrations as well as national industry associations. REPAP2020 aims to support their political work in the field of Renewable Energy - mainly related to the Renewable Energy National Action Plans (RAPs).

REPAP2020 will - in a first phase before the notification of the RAPs to the European Commission - accompany the development of the RAPs by offering good advice to the relevant authorities on the design of the RAPs. Furthermore, REPAP2020 will empower national industry associations to come up with their individual national RES roadmaps which will serve as important tool to influence the drafting phase of the RAPs.

In a second phase, the project will evaluate the RAPs in order to facilitate a constant feedback and learning process. REPAP2020 will show good policy practice and highlight missing pieces in the individual RAPs.

REPAP2020 also aims at creating a network of key players in the field and at offering a platform for the RES industry as well as for Parliamentarians (both EU and national Parliaments) and National Administrations in charge of energy issues. These key actors will be involved both as input providers and disseminating partners. REPAP2020 shall enable them to express their views on the political process and help to improve the upcoming political decisions on RES within Europe and especially on the Member States' level.
