How did energy prices, costs and subsidies impact EU consumers in 2018?

The European Commission recently published their staff working document which drew heavily on the key findings from the study on European energy prices, costs and subsidies which was conducted by Trinomics. The report assesses the role of competition in the forming of wholesale & retail energy prices, analyses the impact of the energy bill on households’ budgets & industrial competitiveness and provides an overview of policy instruments such as energy taxation, subsidies and price regulation.  Among other findings, our study shows that while EU member states’ wholesale prices for electricity and natural gas are often close…

Trans-European gas infrastructure in the light of the 2050 decarbonisation targets

Report: Final gas infrastructure (2 MB) The required sharp decrease in CO2 and other greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 may drastically reduce the share of natural gas in the European energy mix. In 2018 Trinomics prepared a study for DG Energy on the role of trans-European gas infrastructure in the light of the 2050 decarbonisation…

What was the impact of the TEN-E Regulation on Europe’s energy networks and the progress of trans-European energy infrastructure projects?

Report: Evaluation of the TEN-E Regulation (4 MB) In 2017 we led the evaluation study of the Trans-European Energy Networks (TEN-E) Regulation, carried out in collaboration with Enerdata, DNV GL and Spark. The TEN-E Regulation identifies priority corridors and thematic areas of trans-European energy infrastructure and provides guidelines for the selection of Projects of Common…

Study on financing clean energy innovation completed

Trinomics and its partners have completed the study ‘Building the investment community for innovative energy technology projects’ for the European Commission, DG Energy. The overall objective of this study was to contribute to increasing the volume of investment in innovative energy technology solutions by developing investment partnerships (i.e. the investment community). The realization of such…

How to include energy finance in the current EU macroeconomic models?

In 2015, the European Commission launched a two-year project with the objective to improve the modelling of the interactions of European energy and climate policy within the real economy. This major project was led by Cambridge Econometrics and included E3Modelling and Trinomics as partners. In particular, the study aimed to extend two global energy-economy-environment models, to…

Improving the investment community to facilitate increased investments

The European Commission recently published the first deliverable of our study on ‘Building the investment community for innovative energy projects’. The overall objective of the study is to build/strengthen the investment community for innovative energy technologies, in order to increase the volume invested. Financing is…
