Renewable energy cooperation between EU Member States

Supporting EU Member States with practical guidance

Published: 23/10/2014

The European Directive 2009/28/EC establishes national renewable energy targets for the Member States and introduces the possibility for Member States to cooperate in order to jointly achieve their national renewable targets. The European Commission has launched a project led by Ecofys that aims to facilitate cooperation between Member States under the RES Directive and improvements of renewable energy support schemes.

The consortium has explored the practical implementation of Statistical Transfer (Art. 6), Joint Projects (Art. 7), and Joint Support Schemes (Art. 11) together with the relevant national parties. Five case studies discuss in detail the potential set-up and challenges of renewable energy cooperation between Member States and provide solutions for their implementation.
