Development of regional and Pan-European guidelines for more efficient integration of renewable energy into future infrastructure (SUSPLAN)
Title: Development of regional and Pan-European guidelines for more efficient integration of renewable energy into future infrastructure (SUSPLAN)
Funding: European Commission, FP7
Budget: 4 241 298 EUR
Timeframe: 2008 - 2011
Description:
SUSPLAN seeks to bring awareness to and solutions for the coming environmental and energy challenges facing the European community. SUSPLAN focuses on developing strategies, recommendations, and benchmarks for the integration of renewable energy sources (RES) by 2030-2050 within an Europe-wide context. Against this background, SUSPLAN performes a multi-dimensional approach by assembling legislative, policy, business, economic, environmental, and energy professionals together towards addressing the following objectives:
  • Develop grid-based renewable energy sources integrated scenarios for national, regional and European levels;
  • Compare results from each scenario to identify the optimal path for RES integration, in consideration of security issues and economic competitiveness;
  • Establish the institutional capacity and knowledge base on which the subsequent SUSPLAN findings or recommendations are implemented; and
  • Publish SUSPLAN work for decision-makers and related professionals on national and European levels via workshops, reports, and online resources.
