RE-shaping: Shaping an effective and efficient European renewable energy market. D23 final report
The core objective of the RE-Shaping project is to assist Member State governments in preparing for the implementation of Directive 2009/28/EC and to guide a European policy for RES in the mid to long term. The past and present success of policies for renewable energies will be evaluated and recommendations derived to improve future RES support schemes. The core content of this collaborative research activity comprises: Developing a comprehensive policy background for RES support instruments. Providing the European Commission and Member States with scientifically based and statistically robust indicators to measure the success of currently implemented RES policies. Proposing innovative financing schemes for lower costs and better capital availability in RES financing. Initiation of national policy processes which attempt to stimulate debate and offer key stakeholders a meeting place to set and implement RES targets, as well as options to improve the national policies fostering RES market penetration. Assessing options to coordinate or even gradually harmonise national RES policy approaches.
