Description

The study "Mainstreaming RES" (ENER/C1/2014-668) assesses various options for (i) EU-wide measures and policies aimed at mainstreaming renewable energy in the EU across all energy sectors including heating and cooling and transport (it also considers administrative barriers and access to and costs of finance), and (ii) ensuring that the EU achieves its renewable target of at least 27% in 2030. This study provided input to the Impact Assessment supporting the legislative proposal for a recast of the Renewable Energy Directive, which is part of the Commission's "Clean Energy for All Europeans" package.
