REserviceS is a project funded by the Intelligent Energy Europe programme and is led by the European Wind Energy Association. REserviceS (Economic grid support from variable renewables) is the first study to investigate wind and solar based grid support services at EU level. It will provide technical and economic guidelines and recommendations for the design of a European market for ancillary services, as well as for future network codes within the Third Liberalisation Package.
OffshoreGrid is a techno-economic study within the Intelligent Energy Europe programme. It will develop a scientifically based view on an offshore grid in Northern Europe along with a suited regulatory framework considering technical, economic, policy and regulatory aspects. The project is targeted for European policy makers, industry, transmission system operators and regulators. The geographical scope is, first, the regions around the Baltic and North Sea, the English Channel and the Irish Sea. In a second phase, the results will be applied to the Mediterranean region in qualitative terms.
SEANERGY 2020 is an EU funded project – Intelligent Energy Europe programme – and runs from May 2010 to April 2012. It is coordinated by the European Wind Energy Association. The project will provide an in-depth analysis of the national and international Maritime Spatial Planning (MSP) practices, policy recommendations for developing existing and potentially new MSP for the development of offshore renewable power generation, and promote acceptance of the results.
Offshore wind energy deployment can significantly contribute to increasing the share of renewable energy in Europe's energy mix. However, competing uses of the sea, costs, grid integration and other barriers are important challenges to the development of offshore wind.
TradeWind was a European project funded under the EU’s Intelligent Energy-Europe Programme. The project addressed one of the most challenging issues facing wind energy: its maximal and reliable integration in the Trans-European power markets. Recent studies have shown that a large contribution from wind energy to European power generation is technically and economically feasible in the same order of magnitude as individual contributions form conventional technologies, with a high degree of system security and modest additional costs. Wind power penetration is not constrained by technical...
STORE aims to facilitate the realization of the ambitious objectives for renewable energy by unlocking the potential for energy storage infrastructure. Energy storage, as part of an integrated approach including grid reinforcement and demand management helps accommodate higher percentages of intermittent renewable energy by balancing the supply and demand and improving the power quality.
The European electricity system is facing major challenges to implement a strategy for a reliable, competitive and sustainable electricity supply. The development and the renewal of the transmission infrastructure are central and recognised issues in this strategy. Indeed, the transmission system is a complex and strongly interconnected infrastructure that offers a wide range of benefits like reliability improvement, promotion of competitive electricity markets and of economic growth, support for development of new generation and for exploitation of renewable resources.
This project, co-financed by the Intelligent Energy Europe programme of the European Commission, aims at identifying and promoting the use of some measures that could complement or replace the existing support schemes for the deployment of solar photovoltaic (PV) energy installations throughout Europe.
Infrastructure Roadmap for Energy Networks in Europe Analysis and Scenarios of Energy Infrastructure Evolution Identify the strategies for investors and regulators enabling a more secure, ecologically sustainable and competitive European electricity system.
EPSRC Grand Challenge Top and Tail
Transforming the Top and Tail’ is a collaborative project of 8 Universities funded by the EPSRC Grand Challenge Programme. The project focuses on the physical infrastructure change in energy networks required to move the UK to a low carbon economy, and achieve the Government’s 2050 reduction in CO2 emissions target. The ‘top and tail’ are the 2 particular places in the energy network where existing technology and infrastructure need radical change.
Technology Cooperation for wind energy in the frame of the Clean Energy Ministerial (CEM)
The Clean Energy Ministerial is a global forum to share best practices and promote policies and programs that encourage and facilitate the transition to a global clean energy economy. CEM initiatives help reduce emissions, improve energy security, provide energy access, and sustain economic growth.
Risk assessment offshore grid
Die Stiftung OFFSHORE-WINDENERGIE hat im Rahmen des EU-Projektes South Baltic OFF.E.R anhand einer Studie untersucht, wie die Tourismusbranche von der Offshore-Windenergie profitieren kann. Unter dem Titel "The Impact of Offshore Wind Energy on Tourism – Good Practices and Perspectives for the South Baltic Region" wird anhand von Praxisbeispielen aus der Nord- und Ostsee analysiert, wie Offshore-Windparks in regionale Tourismuskonzepte integriert werden können.
Technology Cooperation for wind energy in the frame of the Major Economics Forum (Roadmaps)
The Major Economies Forum on Energy and Climate (MEF) was launched on March 28, 2009. The MEF is intended to facilitate a candid dialogue among major developed and developing economies, help generate the political leadership necessary to achieve a successful outcome at the annual UN climate negotiations and advance the exploration of concrete initiatives and joint ventures that increase the supply of clean energy while cutting greenhouse gas emissions. The 17 major economies participating in the MEF are: Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, the European Union, France, Germany, India, Indonesia,...
Amendment of the national support scheme EEG
POWER (case study European offshore wind farms)
The POWER project unites North Sea regions with an interest in supporting and realising the economic and technological potentials of offshore wind energy. The project assesses environmental and planning as well as acceptance issues of offshore wind farms, supports the development of a reliable supply chain for the sector, and elaborates skills development measures. 37 organisations take part, with representatives from Germany, the UK, Denmark, the Netherlands and Belgium. Transnational co-operation between these regions is creating a North Sea competence network for offshore wind energy.
