A revision of the Renewable Energy Directive 2018/2001/EU (RED II) is necessary to make this existing piece of legislation fit for 55% emission reduction, and to ensure that renewable energy fully contributes to achieving the climate ambition of the EU. To support the European Commission in this policy review, a request for services was issued to provide technical support for RES policy development and implementation: delivering on an increased ambition through energy system integration (ENER/ C1/2020-440).

The project, which started in September 2020, was awarded to a consortium, which includes Trinomics (Lead), Ludwig-Bölkow-Systemtechnik (LBST), Artelys and E3-Modelling (E3M). The consortium supported the European Commission, DG Energy, in identifying and assessing various regulatory options to foster renewable energy deployment that is aligned with the climate ambitions and other EU strategies. The main objective of the request was to assist DG Energy to identify existing sources and develop a series of arguments to be used as evidence in the impact assessment analysis.
