Concerted Action on the implementation of the RES Directive

Author / Source: Austrian Energy Agency

The Austrian Energy Agency is coordinating the Concerted Action on the implementation of Directive 2009/28/EC on the promotion of the use of energy from renewable sources.

The main targets of the CA are to:

  • support Member States in the implementation of the RES Directive
  • to promote dialogue and exchange of best practice between Member States on RES policy implementation and to create an active forum
  • to focus on finding common approaches to the most effective implementation of EU legislation on RES
  • covering only topics where coordination and/or harmonisation of approaches would be beneficial

The concerted action (CA RES) will aim at supporting the implementation of the RES Directive and the achievement of the national targets. Specifically, it will provide a forum for structured discussions and cross learning between Member States. This exchange of views, approaches and experiences concentrates on key requirements of the Directive according to the needs of Member States and the European Commission. While the Directive must be transposed by the EU 27 Member States, the CA RES is also open to other countries which participate in the IEE programme and may adopt the Directive in a later stage.
