The core objective of this project is to facilitate a significantly increased electricity generation from renewable energy sources (RES-E) in a liberalised electricity market with minimal costs to European citizen. To identify most important strategies the dynamic toolbox Green-X will be developed. Related objectives are:
to find a set of efficient and sustainable dynamic instruments integrating strategies for RES-E, CHP generation, DSM activities and GHG-reduction;
to address / include major stakeholders and decision makers in the development process of the toolbox Green-X;
to disseminate the toolbox and the results to key stakeholders and policy makers.
By disseminating the toolbox and the results of this project to policy makers and various stakeholders, acceptance of an EU-wide effective promotion system will be improved.
The main product of this project will be a computer-based toolbox containing the following features:
a database, allowing dynamic changes and calculating potential and costs of RES-E supply, CHP production, efficiency improvement and fuel switching in the electricity sector as well as the corresponding GHG reductions
a dynamic computer model linking and simulating different scenarios between RES-E, CHP, demand-side activities and GHG-reduction in the electricity sector. The output will allow the following results for both the EU as a whole and for individual Member States for each specified year:
- electricity generation of RES-E, conventional electricity, and CHP production
- import / export balance of RES-E, conventional electricity and GHG permits
- impacts of simulated strategies on generation costs and profits for generators
- impact of selected strategies on total costs and financial benefits or disbenefits for EU citizens
The core result of this project is to provide and disseminate essential information with respect to RES-E deployment, CHP, rational use of electricity and GHG reduction to various stakeholders. The main results will be :
a detailed action plan for policy makers aiming to integrate RES-E with other EU-related objectives such as energy efficiency, and climate change abatement. This recommendations will be derived for each country and for the EU as a whole.
recommendations for various stakeholders to derive economically efficient portfolios in liberalised electricity markets under the constraints of RES-E development and GHG-reduction;
To facilitate the information and strengthen the decision process, the toolbox Green-X will be available via the internet.
