Integration of electricity from renewables to the electricity grid and to the electricity market – RES-INTEGRATION final report / Edoardo Binda Zane, Robert Brückmann, Dierk Bauknecht. Berlin : Eclareon, March 2012, 214 p.
This report aims to assess the integration of renewable energy sources (RES-E) in the European grids and markets. Therefore, an extensive research of policies and legislation was conducted in order to analyse the current state of RES-E integration in each one of the 27 Member States. To ensure a balanced and accurate understanding of the situation in each country, 329 stakeholders from different sectors (government, industry, associations, system operators and so on) were contacted. Over 200 of them agreed to be interviewed and participated afterwards in consultation rounds. A detailed description of the methodology applied in this study can be found in Annex I on page 171.
