OSeMBE-Webinar-Recording is now available

The recording of the webinar on OSeMBE the Open Source energy Model Base for the European Union is now available. The webinar, which was originally held on October 10th, gives an overview and some insights on OSeMBE, the OSeMOSYS engagement model developed under task 7.3 in REEEM. You are provided with an introduction to the Open Source energy Modelling System (OSeMOSYS) and the Open Source energy Model Base for the European Union (OSeMBE) itself. The section on OSeMBE is first...

First Integrated Impact Report is now approved by the European Commission

This Integrated Impact Report was conducted by the REEEM consortium in early 2018, and has now been approved by the European Commission. It covers aspects of integrated modelling assessment. Sustainable development has been high on the global agenda over the past couple of decades. The EU in particular appears to be at the leading edge of sustainable development with really ambitious targets been set, both mid and long term. One of the key components of sustainable development is the decarbonisation...

REEEM at the 3rd H2020 Projects Clustering Workshop on Energy System

On November 6th, REEEM took part in the 3rd H2020 Projects Clustering Workshop on Energy System Modelling, held at INEA premises, in Brussels. Here, eight projects (REEEM, SET-Nav, MEDEAS, REflex, Plan4RES, MAGNITUDE, Planet and SPINE) discussed with INEA and the European Commission’s DG Research and Innovation and DG Energy ways to increase the collaboration between funded actions and to extract joint messages on energy transitions to be conveyed to policy makers. The four projects funded under LCE21-2015, REEEM, SET-Nav, MEDEAS...

REEEM participates at a High Level Workshop to inform the revised long-term EU decarbonisation strategy

On June 28th, REEEM took part in the High Level Workshop on ‘R&I contribution to the strategy for long term EU greenhouse gas emissions reduction’ held in Brussels, at the Headquarters of the European Commission’s DG R&I. The workshop was organised by DG Clima and DG R&I in the context of the consultation process for the revised long-term EU decarbonisation strategy looking at 2050 and beyond. REEEM and five other projects (CDLINKS, CARISMA, ADVANCE, REINVENT, INNOPATHS and TRANSRISK) presented their...

Sustainable development has been high on the global agenda over the past couple of decades. The EU in particular appears to be at the leading edge of sustainable development with really ambitious targets been set, both mid and long term. One of the key components of sustainable development is the decarbonisation of the energy system. Moving towards an energy system with a...

Dr Pei-Hao Li (UCL) presents REEEM research at International Energy Workshop (IEW) in Gothenburg

On Tuesday the 19th of June, Dr Pei-Hao Li presented at IEW his research on integrating demand side flexibility from smart appliances and electric vehicles into energy systems modelling. This research co-funded by REEEM highlights the potentially significant impacts such flexibility could have on peak load and system costs and the need for energy system models to better describe such options within their modelling framework.

Open Energy Modelling Workshop – Zurich 2018

At last weeks meeting of the open energy modelling community (openmod) in Zurich, Berit Müller from the REEEM consortium gave a lightening talk about the development of the REEEMgame and the Pathways Dialogue tool  developed in the project. We got good feedback and interesting comments. Many other interesting open-source tools have been presented there, like e.g. pyam – an open-source Python package for IAM scenario analysis and visualization. For more information about the Workshop have a look at the openmod...

REEEM Study on Energy Storage Application

 – Exploring the role of energy storage in the energy transition and identifying key actions to improve and attain this role. Energy storage has a crucial role to play in the energy transition towards a low carbon EU society, by enhancing the reliability, flexibility and security of the European energy system. Energy storage could be particularly significant in the near future, given the ambitious targets for the development and deployment of renewable energy. We expect energy storage to be a...

CGE/TIMES workshop on 22 May 2018 in Glasgow

  Anna Darmani from InnoEnergy, on behalf of the REEEM project, will participate to the CGE/TIMES workshop on 22 May 2018 at the university of Strathclyde. She will make a presentation on the REEEM project modelling-policy interaction issues. The workshop aims at establishing and reinforcing a network of specialist working with TIMES and CGE models for technology innovation and policy applications, with a view on future potential collaborations on papers and/or grant applications. There will be amore than 30 participants...

Renewable energy roadmap workshop

On the 17th April 2018, the REEEM project has hosted its second REEEM Technology and Innovation Roadmap Workshop on Renewable Energy Integration, in Brussels. Renewable energy has the potential to play a big role in the transition pathways toward a European low carbon society. In accordance, ambitious targets have been set for development and deployment of renewable energies in the last decades. To achieve this ambition, there is a need for technological innovation and sustained market supports for the development of the renewable energies, as well as for finding approaches...
