The purpose of this CEER Status Review publication is to provide comparable data on RES support schemes in Europe, in order to provide information to policy-makers, regulators and market participants. The report includes information on the coverage and cost of the support schemes in Member States and on a weighted average basis across Europe, including support costs for 2015. While renewables bring benefits, regulators point out that RES support schemes, where needed, should be designed efficiently, and RES should integrate more into the wholesale market.
This document C16-SDE-56-03 forms the latest update to the regular CEER Status Review of Renewable Energy Support Schemes in Europe and builds on the previous CEER reports C10-SDE-19-04a, C12-SDE-33-03 and C14-SDE-44-03. The report can be found here. A related press release can be found here.
This document sets out CEER Guidelines of Good Practice, which will aid National Regulatory Authorities (NRAs’) in their future design of distribution tariffs. It also provides a CEER common position, which will help to contribute to the debate in an area of core NRAs’ competency.
