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.

Latest news

Upcoming: REEEM General Assembly

From November 26th to 28th, the sixth semi-annual General Assembly will be held. This time, the REEEM project partner TOKNI in Torshavn, Faroe Islands, will host the event.

In three days, partners of the REEEM project will come together to present the work from their work packages, exchange ideas and discuss the results.

The focus of the REEEM General Assembly’s Agenda will be collecting insights for the integrated impact assessment of EU transition pathways. The three key pathways analyzed in the REEEM project are explained on the REEEM website. Also the IPCC’s report 2018 which was published in October, will be discussed and debated, how the pathways recommended by the IPCC report and the pathways developed in the REEEM project can get along.

REEEM at 3rd H2020 Project Clustering Workshop

On November 6th, REEEM took part in the 3rd H2020 Projects Clustering Workshop on Energy System Modelling, held at INEA premises, in Brussels. There, eight projects (REEEM, SET-Nav, MEDEAS, REflex, Plan4RES, MAGNITUDE, Planet and SPINE) discussed with INEA and the European Commission’s DG Research and Innovation and DG Energy ways to increase the collaboration between funded actions and to extract joint messages on energy transitions to be conveyed to policy makers.

The four projects funded under LCE21-2015, REEEM, SET-Nav, MEDEAS and REflex presented the outcomes of their long-term collaboration, for the new projects to build on them. The Energy Modelling Platform for Europe (EMP-E) was confirmed as the main platform for collaboration and sharing of views. All projects submitted there will contribute to the next meeting of EMP-E, likely to occur in November 2019. Other relevant outcomes concern the sharing of model documentation and data for increased transparency, the collection of scenarios modelled across the projects as high-level narratives and the agreement on delivering joint policy documents. The projects also presented the European Commission with their views on potential measures to facilitate collaborations.

Report: What  are technological innovations and market solutions necessary to achieve EU ambition for the 2050 and fully renewable energy into the market?

This roadmap studies the development and deployment of several renewable energy technologies and explores technological innovation and market solutions that allow the development of the renewable energy and finding approaches to fully integrate renewable energy into the energy system efficiently and effectively.
To read more about the report, please take a look on the REEEM website.

Partner of the Month


University College London

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

UCL is one of the UK’s premier universities and is ranked in the world’s top 10. Founded in 1826, it currently employs approximately 8,000 staff, 16,000 undergraduates and 14,000 graduate students.

UCL Energy Institute (UCL EI), launched in 2009, is the University's mechanism for bringing together a wide range of perspectives, understandings and procedures in energy research, transcending the boundaries between academic disciplines. In particular, the UCL Energy Institute develops and undertakes research in the areas of energy systems and energy‐demand reduction, to improve energy security and facilitate a transition to a low‐carbon economy. The research is organised under five research themes: Energy Systems ; Buildings ; Energy and Artificial Intelligence ; Transport ; Energy Space Time. UCL Energy Institute uses for its research a wide portfolio of energy models focused on energy systems, macro‐ economics, integrated assessment, and end‐use sectors (industry, aviation, shipping, urban transport and buildings).

In REEEM, UCL leads the work on “Society, Consumers and Behaviour” (WP4), in addition to contributing to most other work packages throughout the project.
