1 Supported by The new Renewables Directive Introduction of the regulations concerning RES-H/C 2. Project Meeting London, 10/11 March 2009 Veit Bürger, Öko-Institut e.V.

2 The new Renewables Directive www.res-h-policy.eu2 Overall EU target

3 The new Renewables Directive www.res-h-policy.eu3 National targets (1)

4 The new Renewables Directive www.res-h-policy.eu4 National targets (2)

5 The new Renewables Directive www.res-h-policy.eu5 National targets (3) Directive sets mandatory national targets for renewable energy shares related to gross final energy consumption + specific RES target for transport sector MS shall introduce support measures designed as to ensure that the share of energy from renewables equals or exceeds that shown in an indicative trajectory set out in the Annex of the Directive (= indicative interim targets) In order to achieve more easily the mandatory targets each MS shall promote and encourage energy efficiency measures Target compliance is based on statistical data

6 The new Renewables Directive www.res-h-policy.eu6

7 The new Renewables Directive www.res-h-policy.eu7 Technology specific restrictions (in view of target accounting) Heat pumps ─Heat produced by can only be taken into account provided that the final energy output significantly exceeds the primary energy input ─Renewable share calculated in accordance with a specific methodology laid down in the Annex of the Directive Bioliquids for heating/cooling purposes: only eligible for target accounting if they comply with sustainability criteria set out in the Directive Thermal energy generated by passive energy systems not eligible for target accounting

8 The new Renewables Directive www.res-h-policy.eu8 National renewable energy action plans (RAPs) MS are required to adopt a renewable energy action plan (RAP), including ─sector specific 2020 targets for the RES shares in electricity, heating/cooling, transport ─anticipated effects of other policy measures relating to energy efficiency affecting final energy consumption ─policy measures to be taken to achieve these national overall targets (especially support instruments), Commission shall adopt by 30 June 2009 a template for the RAPs MS shall notify their RAPs to the Commission by 30 June 2010 at the latest

9 The new Renewables Directive www.res-h-policy.eu9 Support schemes and flexibility mechanisms Directive keeps subsidiarity of RES support schemes Flexibility measures allow Member States to achieve their targets by non domestic RES projects. The regulations are designed as to avoid double counting of RES production with regard to target accounting Flexibility mechanisms ─Statistical transfers between MS ─Joint projects between Member States ─Joint projects between Member States and third countries (only for eligible for RES-E) ─Joint support schemes

10 The new Renewables Directive www.res-h-policy.eu10 Administrative procedures, regulations and codes MS shall set up streamlined, objective, transparent and non- discriminatory administrative procedures aligned to the particularities of individual RES technologies MS shall introduce in their building regulations and codes appropriate measures in order to increase the share of RES in the building sector MS shall by 2015 at the latest, where appropriate, include in their building regulations and codes a requirement to use a minimum share of RES in new buildings and in existing buildings that are subject to major renovation MS shall ensure that the public body fulfils an exemplary role (e.g. installation of RES-H/C in new + existing public buildings that are subject to major renovation)

11 The new Renewables Directive www.res-h-policy.eu11 Guarantees of Origin (GO) of RES-E and RES-H/C MS may arrange for GO to be issued in response to a request from producers of RES-H/C GO shall have no function in view of MS's target accounting GO shall be of the standard size of 1 MWh No more than one GO shall be issued in respect of each unit of RES-H/C produced MS may provide that no support be granted to RES-H/C for which a GO has been issued

12 The new Renewables Directive www.res-h-policy.eu12 Sustainability criteria for biomass Directive sets out sustainability criteria incl. underlying verification/cerification requirements for biofuels (transport sector) and bioliquids (all sectors) -> relevant for bioliquids in the heating/cooling sector Sustainability criteria are relevant for the eligibility of bioliquids to target accounting and financial support schemes Solid (e.g. wood fuel) and gaseous biomass for heating/cooling purposes: ─COM shall report on requirements for a sustainability scheme for energy uses of biomass, other than biofuels and bioliquids, by 31 December 2009 at the latest. ─The report shall be accompanied, where appropriate, by proposals for a respective sustainability scheme
