The RES Directive 2018/2001/EC established a common framework for the promotion of renewable energy sources in the European Union, setting a European target for achieving a 32% share of renewable energy in the gross final energy consumption by 2030.

The Concerted Action on the renewable energy directive is a project of the HORIZON2020 Programme, which supports the transposition and implementation of the RES Directive. Through this Concerted Action, participating countries exchange experiences and best practices, participate in a cross-learning process and develop common approaches. The confidential character of the CA-RES4 allows participating countries to discuss in confidence how to best implement the RES Directive.

The main objectives of the Concerted Action on the renewable energy Directive (EU) 2018/2001 are as follows:

  • Facilitate a structured exchange of information, experience and good practice regarding the implementation of the Renewable Energy Directive (EU) 2018/2001 between participating countries,

  • Encourage dialogue between participating countries to develop common approaches for the implementation of particular (more complex) parts of the Renewable Energy Directive (EU) 2018/2001,

  • Support the effective implementation of the Renewable Energy Directive (EU) 2018/2001 in participating countries, and


The CA-RES4 will cover the following Core Themes (CT):

  • CT1: Governance, Target Achievement and Cooperation

  • CT2: RES Electricity

  • CT3: Decarbonising Heating and Cooling

  • CT4: Biomass Mobilisation and Sustainability

  • CT5: Decarbonising Transport

  • CT6: Consumer/Citizen´s Engagement

In addition, there is a permanent Task force on Guarantees of Origin and consumer information.

The CA-RES4 benefits from results and proven practices of the Concerted Action on the Energy efficiency Directive (CA EED) and the Concerted Action on the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (CA EPBD). The CA-RES4 coordination team meets regularly with representatives of the CA EED and the CA EPBD in order to exchange experiences and discuss synergies between topics. In addition, joint activities are pursued, to utilize synergies when appropriate.
