Finalisation of the CO2 study/CRASH Programme.

Objective

The purpose of the project is to finalise the CO2 study "CRASH Programme".

Additional tasks have to completed to finalise the CRASH Progamme. They are relative to the completion and harmonization of the data input of the EFOM-ENV model; to new simulation of EFOM-ENV and comparisons with the previous results.

1) The completion and harmonization of the input data are mainly relative to MURE, DERE and FRET options (see JOUM-CT90-0010).

As far as the MURE options are concerned, energy efficiency measure for industry have to be integrated into EFOM.

During the preparation of the DERE Report for the CRASH Programme, the comparison of the DERE data used by each country revealed a number of discrepancies. It has been proposed that the DERE data should be revised using, whenever possible, previous Europe-wide studies to ensure the use of common assumption and costs. Data for ss-hydro, wind, tidal, wave and waste burning technologies will be prepared by ETSU whilst data for photovoltaics, biofuels and active solar will be prepared by an energy consultant (Science). As a continuation of previous DERE project management responsibilities, ETSU will compile the revised DERE data for each country and send it to the appropriate DERE teams for confirmation and/or comments and will pass the agreed data on to the central modelling group. All DERE data and results will be presented in a final DERE report.

The FRET options are more or less completed.

The hydrogen system will be integrated into the Belgian model by an expert (Science) directly in collaboration with the Commission. The time horizon will be 2030 and this task implies that some new data will be added in the model in order to make simulations on this period. Analysis of the H2 potential following the different options will be made by the Commission with the assistance of this expert.

2) New simulations have been mentioned in the introduction. The principle is that it will be a considerably shorter exercise than the original CRASH Programme. The objective is to be sure that there is no fundamental change with the previous results. A large part of the simulations will be made by the Commission.
