ENVIRONMENT, RENEWABLES ENERGY SOURCES and ENERGY EFFICIENCY
This Group focuses on the legislative and regulatory mechanisms used to promote renewable electricity generation, energy efficiency and RES deployment in the Mediterranean basin.

Publications of the Renewables Working Group are available here

Working Group on the Renewables (RES Group)
Objectives 2015-2020
  • Implementation of harmonised regulatory options to promote RES in a cost- Effective way; implementation of advanced distributed generation, grid parity and net metering frameworks in Mediterranean electricity systems.
  • Evaluation of the costs associated with the fulfilment of national RES targets Assessment of the social impact associated with RES promotion and Development in each member country
  • Promote the exchange of information, knowledge and experiences
Main Activities
  • Benchmarking RES electricity (update 2014)
  • Analyse certification systems for RES electricity and Combined Heat and Power(CHP)
  • Analyse improvement son energy efficiency by smart grids, smart metering and Energy Service Companies and the cost that such and improvement in network
  • Analyse main regulatory mechanism like: environment protection; promotion of Renewable Energy Sources (RES) and Combined Heat and Power (CHP); energy efficiency promotion including integration to the grids and smart metering issues and their impact of costs
  • Promote the exchange of information, knowledge and experiences
  • Evaluate the results of the different mechanisms in the national contexts, analysing success factors and critical issues
  • Analyse the possible effects of the introduction at a national level of successful mechanisms adopted in other countries
  • Assess the possibility of collaboration as regards the flexible mechanisms introduced by the Directive 2009/28/EU

  • Study best options to promote RES in isolated systems
  • Participation in the ICER Virtual Working Group2 (Technology Change)
  • • Analyse the cost of integration of a smart grid
