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 Final Meeting

After three years, the REEEM project comes to an end by the end of July. For this occasion, the final meeting of the REEEM project partners will take place from July 15th – 17th in Brussels at the European Commission.

Latest News

New Deliverables available online

In the past couple of weeks, many Deliverables have been submitted to the European Commisson. These Deliverables are already online and ready to be read. For the complete list, please visit the REEEM website.

European Energy System Transition: Regional Energy Security and Grid & Dispatch

The Deliverable 6.4 composes the Policy Brief of the workpackage 6. Two case studies are considered to have a deeper look at certain regions and different modelling approaches for the transition pathways of European Union towards a low carbon society. It includes the main insights obtained in these case studies. It enlightens key conclusions based on the findings of the case studies.

The Policy Brief builds on the detailed analyses reported in Deliverable 6.2 – Regional Energy Security Case Study Report and Deliverable 6.3 – Grid and Dispatch Case Study Report.

Energy Institute Hrvoje Požar 

A total of eleven Organisations, Institutes and Universities from all around Europe are involved in the REEEM project. One of these is the Energy Institute Hrovje Požar (EIHP):

EIHP is a non-profit public institution owned by the Republic of Croatia, which grew upon a fifty-year-old tradition of energy sector planning. EIHP has specific competencies in the fields of energy system operation and development planning, energy statistics and balances, energy strategies and policy issues, market analysis, investment appraisal, regulation of energy markets, econometric and risk analysis. Different energy  models such as MARKAL, WASP, MESSAGE, MAED, PLEXOS and ENPEP are used for long-term, mid-term or short-term demand and supply-side planning on different levels.

Within REEEM, EIHP leads the development of Case Study on “Grid and Dispatch in South-Eastern Europe” in WP 6 and contributes with demand-side modelling expertise to WP 4 on “Society, Consumers and Behaviour”, as well as with capturing economic implications through work in WP 3 on “Economy”.

In the Case Study, EIHP has the role to verify the feasibility of yearly balance calculated in the Integrated European Systems Model for five countries in South-Eastern Europe, in order to analyse the influence of short-term variability on long-term investments and resulting system configurations. PLEXOS is used to develop model of power systems in five EU member states in South-Eastern Europe - Bulgaria, Croatia, Hungary, Romania and Slovenia with the aim to investigate if results obtained from a long-term energy system planning model are feasible and realistic in the scope of short-term variations with an hourly time step for one selected year.
