Renewables burden sharing assessment tool ('REBUS')

Objective

The main objectives of this project are to:
* Support the EU and its MS to achieve their renewable energy target of 12% by the year 2010, as stated in the European Commissions White paper.
* Developing a framework for determining the most equitable distribution of costs (burden sharing) of reaching the 12% target and providing key policy makers, industrial stakeholders and consumers with the guidance and guidelines by which to make decisions that reflect this equity. This will be done by means of the development of an assessment tool to analyse the possible consequences of several burden-sharing options.
The actual outcome of the project comprises:
-Development of the REBUS model;
-Analyses of the effects of burden sharing and certificate trade on the renewable electricity market in Europe;
-Development of a methodology on the definition of costs and potentials of RES-E technologies in the internal EU electricity market. The methodology is used to support comparability of costs across EU Member States and a sound estimation of realisable RES-E potentials. Besides, it can be used for follow-up research with the REBUS and/or SAFIRE model;
-Specification of cost potential curves for RES-E production in the year 2010 for all EU Member States;
-Increased insight of requirements and expectations on designing and implementing burden sharing schemes to achieve RES-E targets.
