Welcome to SUSPLAN

SUSPLAN (PLANning for SUStainability) was a project initiated in 2008 under the European Union’s 7th Framework Programme and was sponsored by the Directorate General for Energy (DG-ENER). The project was running until October 2011. SUSPLAN was seeking to bring awareness to and solutions for the coming environmental and energy challenges facing the European community. Over the three years SUSPLAN focused on developing strategies, recommendations, and benchmarks for the integration of renewable energy sources (RES) by 2030-2050 within an Europe-wide context. Against this background, SUSPLAN performed a multi-dimensional approach by assembling legislative, policy, business, economic, environmental, and energy professionals together towards addressing the following objectives:

  • Develop grid-based renewable energy sources integrated scenarios for national, regional and European levels;
  • Compare results from each scenario to identify the optimal path for RES integration, in consideration of security issues and economic competitiveness;
  • Establish implementation strategies for decisioin makers; and
  • Publish SUSPLAN work for decision-makers and related professionals on national and European levels via workshops, reports, and online resources.
