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.
