“policy watch” database on country-specific RES support and market
development will be compiled via a frequently updated database covering
all the relevant policies in the RES electricity, heat and transport
sectors for the EU-27.
Indicators measuring the effectiveness and efficiency of existing policies
will be further developed and updated for the EU-27. Moreover, the scope
of the assessment will be extended by deriving suitable indicators for the
deployment of RES technologies in the heat and transport sector and by
including other elements such as grid and system services and risks.
proposal will be made for the future design of RES support instruments by
further optimising national policies along the path towards greater
coordination and harmonisation. This includes improved consistency of RES
policies with the internal market and emission trading, better integration
with innovation policy as well as innovative financing schemes.
accompanying flexibility instruments / cooperation mechanisms for RES
target achievement as implemented in the RES Directive will be analysed.
Scenarios for the future deployment of RES will be constructed, which
indicate the consequences of policy choices. These will contribute to
deriving recommendations for how to implement sectoral targets for RES in
national action plans. The long-term perspectives for RES beyond 2020 will
be thoroughly assessed and incorporated into the model-based assessment.
financing schemes will be proposed, which aim to reduce the investment
risk and increase the available capital for RES.
workshops and expert meetings will serve to initiate frequent and intense
discussions between EU, national, local and regional policy makers,
regulators and TSOs / DSOs.
