Project description

The core aim of DIA-CORE is to ensure a continuous assessment of the existing policy mechanisms and to establish a fruitful stakeholder dialogue on future policy needs for renewable electricity (RES-E), heating & cooling (RES-H), and transport (RES-T). The project consortium assesses the role that policies play in the support of renewable energies. Looking at individual EU member states, risk profiles are evaluated and policy recommendations given.
