Strengthening cooperation among leading utilities on development and integration of renewable energies

Objective

The project will examine the current technical and economical boundary conditions and the future perspectives of the appplication and integration of Renewable Energy Technologies, in particular wind power, solar power (PV), hydro power and biomass in the electricity supply sytems of European and Developing countries. The detailed and critical analysis of RE Technologies provided by the project should enable the EU, the utilities and producing industries to develop and improve their R&D and business strategies.
The project will be carried out by members of EURE (European Utilities for Renewable Energy) group, which was set up in 1990 to accelerate technological readiness and market integration of RE. The combination of skills, expertise and know-how of participating companies should not only provide considerable benefit to the productivity of this project, but should lead to a further strenghtening and cooperation among utilities and research organisations in the field of RE.


While RE technology is improved and demonstrated in many other research projects, this project mainly deals with the next step, namely to look at the critical issues of the implementation of RE on a larger scale e.g. economics, Distributed Uitlity concept, technology transfer and markets.
The Work Programme is subdivided into three areas: Area 1 "Critical review of innovative renewable enrgy projects for utility applications"; Area 2 "Technology transfer to Eastren Europe and Developing Countries"; Area 3 "Utility integration of PV generation under the Distributed Utility concept.
