This newsletter will be released every month to inform you about current achievements, events, the status and progress of the project and any other interesting information concerning REEEM.

What is REEEM?


REEEM is an energy system modelling project which started in February 2016. It is part of the H2020-LCE call, focusing on model-based analysis policy measures and transformation pathways to a sustainable energy system. It is divided in seven work packages featuring different tasks from modelling to analysing.

Taking into account various objectives like defining and assessing pathways and case studies or creating a science-policy interface, the project aims to comprehend the system-wide implications of energy strategies in support of transitions to a competitive low-carbon EU energy society, given the goals outlined in the Strategic Energy Technology Plan. The supportive technology impact assessments will target the full integration from demand to supply and also from the individual to the entire system. It will further address people from different sectors of society.

Upcoming Events

REEEM General Assembly

From April 15th -16th 2019, the seventh and last General Assembly of the REEEM project will be held in Lyngby. At the General Assembly all involved project partners will come together to discuss their work. The upcoming General Assembly, hosted by the Technical University of Denmark, will be the last before the project is completed in July.

For this reason, the results of the different work packages will be presented and discussed at the meeting.
The agenda's main focus is on the life after REEEM and how the results can be used after the project is finished.

Case Study on Carbon Leakage and Competitiveness

The Case Study on Carbon Leakage and Competitiveness in the EU analyzed over 20 scenarios varying both European and non-European emissions’ reduction targets to assess the impact of environmental over the competitiveness of EU´s energy intensive sectors. In addition, one workshop was organized in April 2018 in Brussels with stakeholders to present main results and receive feedback regarding extra scenarios. The results from this deliverable suggest that the competitiveness of the energy intensive industries in the EU are affected by the CO2 reduction targets inside and outside of the EU.

Case Study Report on Ecosystem Services

Within the framework of the REEEM project, the case study was included in Work Package 5 on Environment, Health and Resources, where multiple sustainability goals are addressed for gaining a comprehensive understanding of the system-wide implications of decarburization pathways. The case study of Lithuania intended to assess impacts on multiple ecosystem services of forest bioenergy options, as well as to take the first steps for model linking between an ecosystem service assessment tool, and an energy sector development model. In this way, the links between energy assessment and ecosystem services could be strengthened in a more integrated assessment, targeting to increase the sustainability of forest bioenergy strategies. The research was led by the Environmental Management and Assessment (EMA) research group, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, in cooperation with contributors from several institutions.

Partner of the Month


Danmarks Tekniske Universitet

A total of eleven Organisations, Institutes and Universities from all around Europe are involved in the REEEM project. One of these is the Technical University of Denmark.

DTU is recognized internationally as a leading university in the areas of the technical and the natural sciences, renowned for its business-oriented approach, focus on sustainability, and amazing study environment. Founded in 1829, it currently employs approximately 6,000 staff, 7,000 undergraduates and 4,000 graduate students.

Three research groups from the Sustainability Division in the Department of Technology, Management and Economics are involved in the project. Climate Risk and Economics focus on impacts of climate change on the Energy-Water-Land-use nexus. Quantitative Sustainability Assessment apply life cycle assessment for gauging the environmental impacts from the pathways defined in the project. Energy Systems Analysis contribute with their expertise contribute with their expertise on energy systems modelling, as well as integrated modelling approaches.

In REEEM, DTU leads the work on “Environment, Health and Resources” (WP5), in addition to contributing to many other work packages throughout the project.
