After 30 months of intense work, the Horizon 2020 project COME RES will end on 28 February 2023. 16 partners from nine countries analysed barriers, drivers, potentials, good practice examples, business models and transfer possibilities as well as policy development with the ultimate goal to facilitate the development of renewable energy communities in the electricity sector and beyond. The consortium has produced a considerable number of deliverables and is looking forward to share key results of the project at this event, its final conference.

As stated in the EU Green Deal Communication, the just transition to climate neutrality and a sustainable future is the overarching objective of all EU policies and actions. Photovoltaics is a key technology in the energy transition. Prospective scenarios demonstrate a converging view on the necessary deep electrification of most economic sectors, only with solar energy can we deliver electricity in very large quantities, at affordable cost, in an environmentally & societally sustainable way.

Accelerating renewable energy deployment plays a central role in the success of the European Green Deal; it will also contribute to decreasing EU dependence on imported fossil fuels and to lowering energy prices. Solar energy’s contribution to this transition will need to grow significantly in order to power an integrated energy system, electrify end-use sectors and support the rollout of renewable hydrogen in hard-to-decarbonise sectors.
