RE-SHAPING report on performance of renewable energy support...

Published: 21/10/2011

The report describes the status of renewable energy deployment in the EU and the efficiency and effectiveness of support policies applied by the Member States based on a series of indicators. Some of these indicators were already used by the European Commission in their 2005 and 2008 Communications evaluating Member State support policies; new indicators have been developed last year to supplement the existing ones. Conclusions are drawn and policy recommendations are given. This 2011 report is an update of last year's report, using 2009/2010 data.

The core objective of the project led by FRAUNHOFER-ISI is to assist Member State governments in implementing the Renewable Energy Directive and to guide a European policy for RES in the mid- to long-term. Other publications so far include:

  • Country profiles describing the renewable energy support policies in 27 Member States
  • Review report on support schemes for renewable electricity and heating in Europe
  • Design options for cooperation mechanisms between Member States under the Renewable Energy Directive
  • A smart power market at the centre of a smart grid
