The tables present the REEEM public deliverables. Link to the deliverables will become available as the project progresses.
REEEM reports are divided into 5 types , which are described below.
REEEM brings together expertise from a wide range of fields to assess the impacts of technology pathways on the economy, the society and the environment. The Focus Reports will provide insights on the results and findings focusing specifically on each of the three impact areas. They will improve the present knowledge base regarding the impacts of development in sustainable energy technologies. This will help decision makers better evaluate different future pathways by understanding their implications on different parts associated with the energy system. At least two Focus Reports will be published for each impact area, at different points during the project. Each report will have a summary for policy makers.
In REEEM, case studies are employed to supplement the overarching pathways by allowing for in-depth studies that “zoom in” on a particular topic, timeframe and/or region of the EU energy system. Applying an interdisciplinary approach to the case studies, REEEM will address several cross-cutting themes such as energy security, the impact of carbon leakage on competitiveness, behavioural dynamics, and valuing ecosystem services. The case studies will be further enhanced and fine-tuned through stakeholder workshops during the course of the project. The final results of each case study will be presented in an individual report. For anticipated publication dates, refer to Section 3.1. Each report will have a summary for policy makers.
Technology and Innovation Roadmaps with Innovation Readiness Levels
Low-carbon energy technologies play a critical role in meeting the ambitious 2030 energy and climate targets set by EU member states to address challenges such as energy security, climate change and economic growth and competitiveness. To support action towards achieving the EU’s 2030 targets and beyond, this project will consolidate a series of Technology and Innovation Roadmaps which cover all the technologies from the SET-Plan, as these technologies are identified as likely to play an important role in the transition to a competitive low-carbon society.
Based on inputs and guidance from experts in governments, industry and academia, the roadmaps will indicate the status of technology development and identify areas for priority actions. While other technology roadmaps exist, this work aims to be the first that is based on the SET-Plan and linked to energy system models. As such, they will be more nuanced as they provide ranges for the development of economic, technical and environmental parameters of different technologies aligned with the main REEEM pathways. They will, thus, form the basis of all technology-related modelling work within this project.
While the Technology and Innovation Roadmaps identify key areas for technical development, it is important to determine their market potential and readiness expected at different time horizons. Through supplementary assessments of the Innovation Readiness Level and their quantification through advanced cost analysis, this project will provide a comprehensive vision of both “technology push” as well as “market pull” in the spirit of the SET-Plan ‘Integrated Roadmap’. These assessments will highlight current market conditions and identify barriers to the uptake of specific technologies. Three Technology and Innovation Roadmaps will be produced throughout this project.
Integrated Impact Reports
Integrated Impact Reports will present the core work of the REEEM project. They will further strengthen the scientific underpinning of the SET-Plan through detailed impact assessments, and by analysing the role of different technologies in the EU’s future energy system. They will be a culmination of the assessments carried out for the Technology and Innovation Roadmaps and within the three impact areas, combined through an integrated energy systems model. Informed by the Focus Reports, the Integrated Impact Reports will serve to provide a balanced assessment of the implications of various technology pathways based on their impacts across the economy, the society and the environment. A comparison across these impact areas will be enabled through a multi-criteria decision analysis based on cross-disciplinary indicators assessed for each pathway. This will allow identifying the most effective strategies for a transition to an efficient low carbon energy system. Two Integrated Impact Reports will be published. The first one will summarise the work after two years and the second one will integrate all the insights at the end of the project. Each report will have a summary for policy makers.
The aforementioned reports will serve to strengthen the knowledge base and scientific understanding of the energy system. Complementary to these and the provided summaries for policy makers, a series of Policy Briefs will alert the EC in a few pages to the most valuable key insights of the assessments. They will analyse the implications of the technology pathways on the EC’s work and propose energy strategy recommendations.
The analysis and recommendations in the Policy Briefs will be supported by input from civil society, industry and academia. Further, they will form the basis for broader outreach to perform appropriate ‘reality checks’ for the policy-relevance of all project outputs. At least one Policy Brief is foreseen for each case study, impact area (derived from the Focus Report) and for the Integrated Impact Reports.
