REEEM AIMS to gain a clear and comprehensive understanding of the system-wide implications of energy strategies in support of transitions to a competitive low-carbon EU energy society, given the objectives and framework outlined in the Strategic Energy Technology Plan. The provisions of the energy services in this society will be defined by their sustainability, affordability, efficiency, energy security and reliability.

The supportive technology impact assessments will target the full integration from demand to supply and from the individual to the entire system. It will further address the trade-offs across society, environment and economy along the whole transition pathway… Read more

Focus Report – Health Impacts and External Costs due to Air Pollution

This Deliverable 5.2 “Focus Report on Health Impacts and External Costs due to Air Pollution” describes the methodology, main results and insights with regard to health and environmental impacts due to air pollution as an additional indicator for sustainable transformation pathways. By carrying out a comparative scenario analysis of three different pathways, which all feature ambitious GHG mitigation targets, the interactions of decarbonisation and air pollution control are studied, with one scenario having ambitious RES targets as an additional decarbonisation...

A look back at the REEEM workshop on Regional Aspects of European Energy Transition

On June 4, one of the last REEEM Project stakeholder workshops was held in Vilnius. It aimed at discussing energy security and other energy transition issues that are especially relevant for the Baltic region. Lina Sabaitienė, Vice-Minister of Energy of Lithuania, and Virgilijus Poderys, member of Lithuanian Parliament and Chair of the Commission for Energy and Sustainable Development, opened the workshop and highlighted the most important current issues in the energy landscape of the Baltic region. The members of REEEM...

Economic Impacts of Energy Transition – Linking energy system model TIMES PanEU with NEWAGE

An energy transition implying deep fuel shifts and significant investments towards decarbonisation is likely to carry impacts on economies, in terms of GDP growth, job market, gains or losses in competitiveness, etc. This analysis is carried out with NEWAGE, a top-down, recursive dynamic general equilibrium model which finds the pare to point between different players in the economy in REEEM project. However, as much as the development of the energy sector has implications for the whole economy, conversely the whole...

Journal paper – Technology interdependency in the United Kingdom’s low carbon energy transition

A new paper was published online in April 2019 by the journal “Energy Strategy Reviews” based on REEEM research. Titled “Technology interdependency in the United Kingdom’s low carbon energy transition”, the paper sets out to explore the conditions in which different low carbon technologies are chosen and deployed in future energy systems. In this research, we use a clustering algorithm to explore, across many hundreds of scenarios, whether technologies tend to be deployed with other technologies (due to some dependency),...

REEEM at International Conference on “Energy, Sustainability and Climate Change”

From June 3rd to 7th 2019, the REEEM partner from Energy Institute Hrvoje Pozar (EIHP) will participate in the 6th International Conference on “Energy, Sustainability and Climate Change” in Chania, Greece. For EIHP, Martina Mikulić, Dražen Balić and Ivana Milinković Turalija will participate in the conference. In Session 6 “Power Systems – Renewable Energy”, they will present the REEEM case study on Grid and Dispatch in South Eastern Europe. The International Conference on Energy, Sustainability and Climate Change is a...

REEEM Workshop: Regional Aspects of European Energy Transition

Lithuanian Energy Institute (LEI) invites to a workshop REGIONAL ASPECTS OF EUROPEAN ENERGY TRANSITION which will be held on June 4th from 12:00 to 16:00 in the Martynas Mažvydas National Library of Lithuania (Gedimino 51-305, Vilnius, Lithuania). This workshop is a part of the REEEM project, which is financed by the European Commission through the program Horizon 2020. The project aims to gain a clear and comprehensive understanding of the system-wide implications of energy strategies in support of the transition...

Case Study Report – Grid and Dispatch in South Eastern Europe

This deliverable includes methodology, main results and findings from case study on Grid and Dispatch in South Eastern Europe (SEE). Case studies in REEEM are considered to have a deeper look at certain regions and different modelling approaches for the transition pathways of European Union towards a low carbon society. This case study verifies the feasibility of yearly balance calculated in TIMES PanEU for five countries in SEE, in order to analyse the influence of short-term variability on long-term investments...

Look back at the 7th General Assembly: the outcome

From April 15th – 17th the REEEM partners have met in Copenhagen at DTU for the 7th and last General Assembly of the REEEM project. During the two days, the participants exchanged results and processed the work in the project (read here more details about the agenda of the past GA). Besides finalizing the results and discussing the progress, the consortium decided to create a brochure which showcases the REEEM results and the strengths and assets of the REEEM partners for possible future cooperations...

European Energy System Transition: Regional Energy Security and Grid & Dispatch

This Deliverable 6.4 composes the Policy Brief of the workpackage 6. Two case studies are considered to have a deeper look at certain regions and different modelling approaches for the transition pathways of European Union towards a low carbon society. It includes the main insights obtained in these case studies. It enlightens key conclusions based on the findings of the case studies. The Policy Brief builds on the detailed analyses reported in Deliverable 6.2 –Regional Energy Security Case Study Report...

Coming up: REEEM final meeting
