Analysis of effects of trade to achieve RES-E targets and interaction with supporting policies

The following cases were analysed in the REBUS project:

Target options (different concepts to distribute the overall EU target of 22% RES-E over the Member States):
- Draft Directive: national targets similar to the targets specified in the Draft Directive.

- Flat rate: equal targets for all countries, similar to the average target as set in the draft Directive (including update). For those countries of which the share of RES-E in the base year is higher than this average target, the target for the year 2010 is set equal to the 1997 realisation.

- Related to potential: the individual targets are set according to the total potential of RES-E in the country.

- Equal share per capita: each human being in the EU should have a similar share of its electricity consumption based on renewables.

- Equal growth RES-E: Starting from the 1995 situation, the growth in total electricity production from renewables should be similar in each EU Member State.

Burden sharing options (different concepts to distribute the costs of achieving the overall EU target of 22% RES-E over the Member States):
- Least cost division: the cheapest division of targets over the countries at the costs of achieving the overall EU target.

- Equal costs per GDP: the costs to achieve RES-E targets are divided over the EU Member States according to the Gross Domestic Product of each Member State.

- Equal costs per capita: the costs to achieve RES-E targets are divided over the EU Member States according to the population of each Member State.

Policy cases and sensitivity cases:
- Including Norway in the EU trading system.

- Excluding certain technologies from the EU trading system: excluding municipal solid waste, all waste options, new large hydro and a combination of these.

- Interaction with EU-wide additional support for PV.

- Interaction with specific national support schemes: continuation of feed-in tariffs for wind power in Germany and Spain and interaction with Dutch energy tax.

- Removal of overall cap on the growth in wind power in the EU to simulate unlimited wind power production.

- Lower growth rates for electricity consumption.
