Past Projects

Projects finished in 2017:

The EU Smart Cities Information System (SCIS) (2014-2017) brings together project developers, cities, institutions, industry and experts from across Europe to exchange data, experience and know-how and to collaborate on the creation of smart cities and an energy-efficient urban environment.

2030 Governance Project (2015-17) CEPS and ECH (Energy Climate House) are partners in a project for the German energy ministry (BMWi) on 2030 governance. CEPS-ECH examines the role of regional cooperation in implementing the EU 2030 climate & energy framework. Specifically, regional initiatives for electricity markets and renewable support systems will be looked into.

Task Force: Improving the Market for Flexibility in the Electricity Sector (2017-17) CEPS Energy Climate House held a Task Force on "Improving the Market for Flexibility in the Electricity Sector" Flexibility is necessary to ensure that demand and supply can be matched at every given point in time to keep the electricity system stable. Flexibility in the electricity sector can therefore be described as the capability to dynamically compensate supply peaks and shortages as well as bottlenecks in the grid. The higher the share of intermittent renewables, the more flexible resources are needed.

Projects finished in 2016:

CEPS Carbon Market Forum (2011-2016)  - Umbrella programme for CEPS carbon market-related activities, with a focus on international climate change policy, linking with other markets, international offsets, and new mechanisms.

DIACORE Policy Dialogue on the assessment and convergence of RES policy in EU Member States - (2013-2016)The aim of the DIACORE project is to ensure a continuous assessment of the existing policy mechanisms for renewable energy sources (RES) and to establish a fruitful stakeholder dialogue on future policy needs for renewables in electricity, in heating & cooling, and in transport. 

European Climate Platform (ECP) - (2005-2016) The ECP set as its objective to facilitate policy/research interaction, mainly but not exclusively in Europe. Its working method consisted in bringing together a select number of policy-makers, negotiators and experts to discuss key topics in the area of international climate change policy.

Fitness check on the construction industry (2015-2016) - CEPS is a member of a consortium that is conducting a supporting study  for European Commission for a the fitness check on the construction industry in the EU

Fitness check on the ceramics and glass industries (2015-2016) - CEPS is leading a consortium that is conducting a supporting study  for European Commission for a the fitness check on the ceramics and glass industries in the EU

Framework contract for the European Parliament (2016)  - CEPS in partnership with Economisti Associati has been awarded a framework contract for the provision of the external expertise in the field of ex-post impact assessment and evaluation for Industry, Research and Energy

GREENECONET - (2013-2016) GreenEcoNet's ambition is to connect SMEs in Europe to each other to share their experiences, innovations and best practices; and to strengthen the links between SMEs and the research community.

Regionalisation of EU energy policies - (2014-tbc)  The project will examine the political and economic justification to pursue cross-EU border approaches, specifically in terms of the cooperation potential in South East Europe.

POCACITO - (2014-2016) The project Post‐Carbon Cities of Tomorrow – foresight for sustainable pathways towards liveable, affordable and prospering cities in a world context – will develop an evidence-based 2050 roadmap for EU post-carbon cities. 

POLIMP - Mobilizing and transferring knowledge on post-2012 climate policy implications. (2013-2016) POLIMP (FP7) aims at identifying, where knowledge gaps exist, of what future international climate policy directions may look like and what these imply for policy and decision makers internationally and within the EU.

Towards2030-dialogue - (2014-2016) This strategic initiative intends to facilitate and guide the RES policy dialogue for the period towards 2030, that establishes a European vision of a joint future RES policy framework.
