Integrated Impact Report

A new report was conducted by the REEEM consortium, in early 2018, covering 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 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...

REEEM presented at EGU General Assembly 2018 – Vienna

On April 10th, at the European Geosciences Union General Assembly 2018, in Vienna, Austria, Francesco Gardumi on behalf of the REEEM Consortium gave a presentation on ‘Integrated impact assessment of decarbonisation pathways for the EU: insights from the REEEM project’. The presentation took place in the session dedicated to ‘Energy and environmental systems interactions – Policy and modelling’. It focused on methodological challenges and solutions for integrated modelling currently under discussion in the project. This intervention was one of several...

Special Issue on EMP-E 2017 ‘Energy transition and decarbonisation pathways for the EU’ now online

The first papers of the Virtual Special Issue ‘Energy transition and decarbonisation pathways for the EU‘ of Energy Strategy Reviews (Elsevier) are now online, with introduction by the European Commission’s DG Ener, DG JRC and DG R&I. The Special Issue focuses on the modelling methodologies, case studies and policy-relevant insights discussed at the first meeting of the Energy Modelling Platform for Europe (EMP-E) organised by the REEEM project. The collection provides a peer-reviewed digest of models and insights on decarbonisation...

Upcoming EMP-E 2018 meeting: Modelling clean energy pathways

The next meeting of the Energy Modelling Platform for Europe (EMP-E) will be held held on September 25th-26th in Brussels, at the premises of the European Commission’s DG R&I. Key themes discussed at the 2018 meeting will be Innovation in the energy transition, Integrated modelling of energy and resource efficiency and Modelling of behavioural aspects. The first day will be dedicated to plenary sessions, while the second day will be dedicated to parallel focus group sessions. On both days the...

REEEM participated to the Decarbonisation Projects Networking Workshop

On behalf of REEEM, KTH took part to the Decarbonisation Projects Networking Workshop co-organised by the European Commission’s DG RTD and the Executive Agency for SMEs (EASME) on February 7th, 2018. Two sessions of the workshop were dedicated to panel discussions on zero-emission pathways and on the costs & challenges of the low-carbon transition in the main emitting sectors in the EU; one session was dedicated to poster presentations, where REEEM contributed with a work on ”; the last session...
