Scoping Mission on a Regional Strategy and Action Plan on Energy Efficiency in the Caribbean Community (CARICOM)

The Member States of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) are mostly Small Island Developing States (SIDS), which share a number of challenges in their sustainable development. Energy intensity of the Caribbean is among the highest in the world. High unexploited energy efficiency potential exists in all elements of the value added chain of the energy sector (energy production, transmission and distribution, as well as end use). Previous attempts to increase energy efficiency on both national and regional level lack coordination and did not lead to the expected results. Therefore, the need to develop a regional policy and strategy on energy efficiency was recognized.

European Union Energy Initiative (EUEI) received a request from the CARICOM Secretariat in February 2016 for providing technical assistance to develop a regional policy and strategy on energy efficiency for the CARICOM Member States. To expedite the request, a scoping mission was conducted in order to evaluate the feasibility of the received request. The Scoping Mission provided an overview of energy sector of all CARICOM Member States as well as an understanding of challenges with energy efficiency measures in the region. Previous initiatives and projects on both regional and national level were assessed. The institutional capacity in the region was assessed.

Methods applied incorporate desk research and a survey among key stakeholders in the region through face-to-face, phone or Skype interviews.

The results including recommendations were documented in a report and a presentation. Terms of Reference for the development of a regional energy efficiency strategy were drafted.

Task: elaboration of a report with problem evaluation and recommendations; drafting of Terms of Reference for developing a regional strategy and action plan on energy efficiency

Regulatory Support for Renewable Energy Regulatory Framework and Grid Integration

The energy sector of Kosovo features unreliable and conventional electricity supply that is based on fossil fuels. The quick development of renewable energies can satisfy the increasing energy demand and contribute to reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.

The Energy Regulatory Office of Kosovo has put in place feed-in tariffs for renewable energy technologies. Though it resulted in increased interest from the private sector, numerous regulatory uncertainties often prevented project realization. Within the project, which was carried out in collaboration between Fichtner GmbH and Dr. Langniß – Energie & Analyse, the existing tariff structure for renewable energy technologies and district heating was revised and updated. A grid integration study was also carried out. Workshops with workers of regulatory authorities in Kosovo and presentation of the results were also part of the project.

CALLIA – Open Inter-DSO electricity markets for RES integration

CALLIA is a European Smart Grids project within the ERA-Net Smart Grids Plus framework of the European Union. The main goal of CALLIA is improving RES integration at the DSO level in a transnational context. Therefore, technology development and a consistent regulatory framework are required and will be realized in CALLIA.

In November 2015, CALLIA was selected by ERA-Net together with 20 other projects out of 50 applications. CALLIA’s start date will be July 1st, 2016. Twelve project partners from Austria, Belgium, Germany and Turkey will collaborate within CALLIA having a budget of around € 4.8 million available.

Dr. Langniß – Energie & Analyse was primarily in charge of developing the CALLIA proposal and of organizing and coordinating the application process. After the project start, Dr. Langniß – Energie & Analyse will be coordinating the project together with ISC Konstanz.


  • Comparison and harmonization of processes for collaborations betweeen TSOs and DSOs
  • Integration of multi-agent systems in transmission and distribution grids
  • Preparation of a transnational exploitation plan
  • Expert knowledge for energy policy and energy systems
  • Development of project plan and project description

Development Smart Grids Showcase C/sells

C/sells as an extensive show case project creates an east-west-solar arc connecting solar energy dominated "energy cells" solar cells with Baden-Wuerttemberg in the center. Due to the high solar generation and the mix of urban and rural areas, Baden-Wuerttemberg is predestined for the project. Furthermore a diverse interaction pattern provides optimal conditions in order to implement new cooperation models.

More than 50 partners from Electricity Supply Industry, manufacturing, energy consumers, municipalities, and academic research will work over a period of four years on building up the energy system of the future. Dr. Langniß - Energie & Analyse compiled a consortium with over 50 partners from business and academia. A detailed draft had been drafted coordinating the comprehensive input of the partners. The draft presented the project’s content, approach, cost structure and organization with an overall scope of 100 million Euros. Dr. Langniss – Energie & Analyse supported funding applications of the partners, and coordinated with funding authorities.
