Options for a sustainable EU renewable energy policy

"Launched in April 2013, DIA-CORE is carried out under the Intelligent Energy Europe programme. Its main objective is to ensure a continuous assessment of the existing policy mechanisms and to establish a fruitful stakeholder dialogue on future policy needs for renewable electricity (RES-E), heating & cooling (RES-H) and transport (RES-T). Thus, DIA-CORE seeks to facilitate convergence in RES support across the EU and to enhance investments, cooperation and coordination.

The workshop on "Options for a sustainable EU renewable energy policy" will be focused on presenting and discussing concrete policy options for supporting renewables.  A keynote speech by Ivo Schmidt (European Commission) will be followed by presentations on Increasing the effectiveness and efficiency of renewable energy policies by optimizing economic and non-economic framework conditions; Smart policies to reduce renewable energy cost of capital;  Market values of RES technologies and the merit-order effect - outcomes of the ex-post and ex-ante assessments and policy implications; and Enhancing coordination of renewable energy support across the EU Member States.
