EU Renewable Energy industryEurope is global leader in RES development450.000 jobs in Europe already now – 2 million in 2020Annual turnover of 45 billion € already now New paradigm: Markets for the environment
Top five countries investing in RESSource: REN21
Precondition for successful industry creation: Coherent RES policy framework
EU Renewable energy policy since 1997 sustainability – world leadership in halting climate change security of supply – oil & gas supply concerns, price volatility competitiveness – world-leading innovative industrial sector
The 20‐20‐20 EU policy by 2020 100% -20% -20% +20% 8,5% Greenhouse Energy Renewables in gas levels consumption energy mix
Renewable EnergyTechnology Roadmap 20 % by 2020 33-40 % RES –electricity 25 % RES heating & cooling 10 % biofuels
The RES Directive• Establishes a framework for for the promotion of renewable energy sources in the EU up to 2020.• sets mandatory national targets for renewable energy sources in final energy consumption and in the transport sector.• It requires the streamlining of administrative procedures, more information and training on RES and access to the electricity grid for energy from renewable sources.

National Renewable Energy Action Plans (NREAPs)• NREAPs detail the measures taken by Member States to meet their 2020 targets.• Member States will set sectoral targets in the NREAPs for the electricity , heating & cooling and transport sectors.• NREAPs will provides policy stability for investment.
Programme Prosol residential in Tunesia The evolution of the offer (fin 2008) 25 eligible suppliers, (out of which 05 Tunesian collector producers), compared to 12 suppliers en 2005. 750 installers eligible (micro-companies) compared to 325 installers in 2005. √ 2000 direct jobs created
Ökoenergie-Cluster Upper Austria• network of renewable energy & energy efficiency companies in Upper Austria• 150 partners & 40 Czech partners• since 2000• www.oec.at• leading companies in biomass heating, solar heating, low energy buildings• managed by O.Ö. Energiesparverband, the energy agency of Upper Austria •Turnover: 1,570 million Euro •Employees: ~ 4,500 •Export share: > 50 %
Conclusions• Precondition for successful RES industry creation: stable framework• Countries coming first benefit most• Policy & private sector need to closely work together• Facilitators such as – RCREEE/MED‐EMIP – Clusters – RES industry associations can speed‐up process, e.g. through organisation of trade missions , etc.
