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
