Analysing Transition planning and Systemic Energy Planning Tools for the implementation of the Energy Technology Information System

Objective

The present project aims at bringing together EU competence on a transition towards a sustainable and low carbon energy system through energy innovation, encompassing transition planning, energy modeling activities, and technology assessment. This will be achieved by creating a platform in which techniques and data are collected, shared and harmonized. The Objectives of the project are to: • Review models/tools used in the European Countries, taking in mind what is used outside Europe, and what are the requirements of the SETPlan (WP1, WP2) • Identify and recommend common tools to be used in all countries and in the Energy Technology Information System, and gain consensus on these models (WP3). • Identify and recommend existing technology databases and provide a roadmap for the development of these databases on a European and on a regional basis (WP4). • Demonstrate the ability of the recommended tools to be used for energy planning (WP5) • Identify the roadmap for the improvement and development of the tools in order to cover the needs of the SETPlan implementation (WP6). To achieve these objectives the project consortium consists of Institutions with a long experience in the fields of energy planning tools development and use. In order to ensure the direct links with the SETPlan development and requirements, the JRC, Institute of Energy will be part of the Steering Committee of the project. The final outcome of the project is expected to be a concrete list of tools, that can be used on a Member State level and on a European level which will be generally accepted, an initial set of input data for these models, and a roadmap for the development of both data and tools, in the future.
