Abstract

This is deliverable 4.5 of the SOLID-DER project, summarizing most relevant findings, conclusions regarding the topic of the project. It concerns the current position of distributed energy resources (DER) in electricity supply, drivers for more DER and reviews the different technical and economic barriers. It presents the solutions and technical, economic and regulatory changes and policies for increasing the share of DER (renewable energy resources (RES) and distributed generation (DG)) in the power supply of all EU countries in the next decades.

At the end the report also discusses the most recent developments and issues, i.e. the increasing role of intermittent RES and DG generation and their system impacts that need to be reduced in the future to maintain the reliability levels of the power system. Finally, it presents policy measures, regulation and the pending RTD issues necessary to be solved soon to enabling the meeting of the ambitious EU RES targets in 2020 and beyond in all EU countries.
