Working Group on the Renewables (RES Group)
Objectives 2018-2019
  • 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 and Promote the exchange of information, knowledge and experiences
  • Assessment of the social impact associated with RES promotion and development in each member country and when required the WG will study the best options to promote RES in isolated systems
Main Activities
  • Benchmarking RES electricity (update 2018 data)
  • Analyse improvement of energy efficiency by smart grids, smart metering and energy service companies and the cost that such an improvement in network
  • Analyse main regulatory mechanisms 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 and 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 RES mechanisms adopted in other countries
