Integrated Assessment of RES cooperation between the EU and its neighbours

This concise web representation aims to provide final results of an independent in-depth model-based assessment of RES cooperation between the EU and its neighbours, conducted within the frame of the IEE project BETTER. Aim is to identify the extent to which RES cooperation betweencan create mutual benefits, identifying costs and benefits for both sides but in particular with respect to RES target achievement (2020, 2030 and beyond) at EU level. Prospects for RES generation in Turkey, North Africa, the Western Balkans and the EU are calculated under various policy pathways, reflecting the uncertainty on the way forward – e.g. concerning the ambition level of future RES targets and RES developments at EU level and in the assessed neighbouring regions / countries as well as with regard to RES cooperation.

Please note that the topic discussed in this scenario viewer is presented in full detail in the report “Integrative assessment of RES cooperation with Third countries“ (D6.4) with respect to mid- to long-term prospects, and in the report “RES cooperation with Third countries in the 2020 context“ (D6.2) focussing on short-term perspectives.
