Welcome to the JRC Publications Repository
The JRC Publications Repository is an online service giving access to data about research publications produced by the European Commission's Joint Research Centre.
This service is established to assist with central storage, management and search to our research publications.
Where possible we will endeavour to provide access to a full-text publication.
The increased electricity production from variable sources in the EU combined with the overall decline in demand in recent years, have raised concerns about the security of electricity supply, in general, and in particular about generation adequacy and flexibility, prompting some Member States to consider new public interventions, the so-called capacity remuneration mechanisms. This work presents a review of the underlying capacity mechanism studies for Greece based on European best practices...

A current EU geographical distribution of spatial information for the 37 Invasive Alien Species (IAS) of Union concern (IAS Regulation 1143/2014) is set, based on the best available knowledge, resulting from an assessment of data aggregated through the European Alien Species Information Network (EASIN) in collaboration with the Member States (MS) Competent Authorities of 18 EU countries. This baseline is an important tool supporting the implementation of the IAS Regulation and also provides a...
In June 2016, the European Commission issued a new EU Blue Card proposal. The new proposal is meant to make the EU more attractive for highly qualified workers from third countries. While aimed at strengthening the knowledge-based economy of the EU, the potential impacts of the new Blue Card proposal on less developed sending countries raise a number of questions. The present study attempts to shed light on potential challenges and opportunities by analysing the impacts of the new EU Blue Car...
EMHIRES is the first publicly available European solar power generation dataset derived from meteorological sources that is available at country, bidding zone, NUTS-1 and NUTS-2 level. It was generated applying using the validated and robust PVGIS model to estimate the solar electricity potential capturing local geographical information to generate meteorologically derived solar power time series at high temporal and spatial resolution, validated with transmission system operators' data.
