                        Introduction to the Renewable Energy Directive

                        Dear Anna,

                        Date: May 29, 2015, 13h00 - 14h00 Central European Time (check your local time)

                        In 1997 the European Commission published a White Paper that set the first target for renewabele energy sources (RES) deployment in the EU: the contribution of RES to gross inland consumption of energy was to increase from 5.4% in 1997 to 12% in 2010 (European Commission, 1997). In the following years, this 2010 target was underpinned by further European policy documents that formulated requirements to the EU member states, in particular the requirement to introduce policy measures to increase the market share of RES. The renewable electricity directive 2001/77/EC and the biofuels directive 2003/30/EC set indicative targets for the RES share in the electricity and transport sector 2010: The RES share in electricity consumption should increase to at least 21% in the EU-27 (22% in the EU 15), broken down into individual member state targets; the share of biofuels in total diesel and petrol transport fuels should increase to at least 5.75% in all EU member states. Shifting the focus from 2010 to 2020, the European Council agreed on new, binding RES targets for Europe in March 2007, based on an earlier proposal by the European Commission (European Commission 2007): the share of RES in overall energy consumption should increase to at least 20% by 2020 (Council of the European Union 2007), the share of biofuels in total transport consumption to at least 10%.

                        The Directive 2009/28/EC on the promotion of the use of energy from renewable sources implements the legislation to reach the objective at least 20% of the EU’s final energy consumption with renewable energy sources by 2020. It sets mandatory national targets for the overall share of renewable energy sources (RES) in gross final energy consumption for each Member State. The annex to the Directive also defines an indicative trajectory for RES developments leading to the 2020 objectives. The Directive requests Member States to present national renewable energy action plans describing the detailed sectoral and technological targets and implemented and planned measures for their achievement. Furthermore flexibility measures between Member States are introduced, which comprise statistical transfers, joint projects (also with third countries) and joint support schemes. Additional issues like administrative procedures, regulations and codes, information and training are covered by the directive as well as provisions on access to and operation of the grids and the introduction and the introduction of guarantees of origin of electricity, heating and cooling.

                        This course will introduce the historic development of renewable energies in the sectors electricity, heat and transport in the EU and present the potentials per Member State. Furthermore the impacts of different scenarios on the costs and benefits of RES deployment as a key motivation for RES target setting will be shown. Then the relevant articles and provisions of Directive 2009/28/EC in the context of the overall policy debate at Member State and EU level will be introduced. Finally the main content of the national renewable energy action plans and the evaluation of the progress made against the targets of the directive will be discussed.

                        Kind regards
