Abstract: The present paper compares three earlier model projections with the shares of different power technologies proposed in the National Renewable Action Plans (NREAPs) of the European Member States (MS). This gives deeper insight of the renewable energy policy support and policy formulation processes and interaction between the various MS and the EU. To some extent government plans built solidly on model outputs some other cases they overwrote projections. Analysing their interactions proves to be useful not only for refining further the projections concerning the power portfolios in the European countries, but can provide a positive feed back for the different stakeholders in decision making process in the renewable energy context (decision makers, research institutions, lobby organisations). At the same time such analysis can further enhance the interaction between the relevant stakeholders and the feedback can result in increasing the effectiveness of the policy formulation.
