Key Support Elements of RES in Europe: Moving Towards Market Integration

This document (C15-SDE-49-02) presents a detailed analysis of the key aspects of operational support schemes for renewable energy sources across the European Union and explains the developments expected in the years to come.
It explores the different procedures for determining levels of RES support, both administrative and competitive, and sets out alternative mechanisms to enhance the market integration of RES.
The purpose of this CEER report is to provide insight to policy-makers about the diversity and complexity of RES support schemes, notably by presenting the different design options and the challenges their realisation poses.
This report should be read in the context of the new requirements for renewable aid as set out in the State Aid Guidelines and the current ongoing discussion about a new electricity market design which more effectively integrates renewable energy sources into the market.
