reeem-logo-transparent REEEM is a H2020 Research and Innovation project funded under the Low-Carbon Energy call in 2015. It aims to gain a comprehensive understanding of the system-wide implications of transition pathways towards a low-carbon EU energy society. The project specifically assesses the potential implications of EU transition pathways and the role of innovation on the EU society, environment and economy. This is achieved through:
  • The development of an integrated assessment framework, based on a large set of best-in-class models;
  • The production of open source and widely documented tools to make the methodologies transparent and disseminate the key messages.
  • The drafting recommendations for policy-makers and businesses on how to drive this transition towards a low-carbon EU energy system.

Renewable energy has the potential to play a big role in the transition pathways towards a low carbon society in Europe and has many recognised benefits. So, the European Union has aimed to increase the share of renewable energy in the electricity industry to at least 50% by 2030. The Innovation Readiness Level (IRL) studied the readiness of renewable energy technologies along 5 dimensions of technology readiness level and provides recommendations for policymakers.
