2030 EU framework for RES

Options for tackling key challenges in the 2030 European Union framework for renewable energy sources

In this project, eclareon examined the specific challenges to the creation of a legal and political framework for the deployment of RES at EU level in the post 2020 period. The focus of the assessment was on the differing financial costs for RE projects in the EU Member States, which are mainly caused by diverging costs of capital. In cooperation with the project partners Ian Temperton and Matthias Buck from Agora Energiewende, Robert Brückmann developed a EU Renewable Energy Cost Reduction Facility, an elaborated tool to reduce the cost of capital for RES projects. This instrument is based on a European guarantee program zu protect plant operators against particular, well defined risks. The European-wide implementation of this instrument could reduce the costs for consumers and taxpayers by 35 Billion Euro by 2030.

Robert Brückmann supported the development of this instrument with his knowledge on cost of capital for wind power projects in the EU 28 Member States.
