Starting today: Online course on battery storage technology

Based on the results of the first REEEM roadmap on battery storage application (see deliverable D2.1a), an online course has been designed and produced by InnoEnergy in order to answer the question: Could battery storage technology be the answer to imbalanced energy demands? This course primarily is based on the analyses and findings of the REEEM roadmap and will cover: The need for flexibility demand in the EU electricity industry and the role of battery storage. Battery storage technologies: characteristics, potentials...

REEEM Technology and Innovation Roadmap Workshop on Energy Efficiency in Buildings now open for registration!

On March 19th 2019, the third REEEM Technology and Innovation Roadmap Workshop on Energy Efficiency in Buildings will take place at EIT InnoEnergy in Brussels. Energy efficiency is at the top of the EU priorities for the Energy Union, as stated in the Clean Energy Package for all Europeans as “Energy Efficiency First”. Therefore, the objective of the REEEM roadmap is to explore innovative methods and technologies that enable reaching EU energy efficiency targets for 2030. It further explores the...

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...

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...

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...
