The SYRENE programme (SYstems integration of Renewable and End-use energytechnologies in the NEtherlands) aims to provide a contribution to the programming of the Netherlands Agency for Energy and the Environment (NOVEM). In this study the technology characterizations of eight other studies, carried out within the SYRENE programme, are integrated. In selecting energy technologies to be financially supported, the possible future role of energy technologies needs to be anticipated. The assessment of the prospects of energy technologies to play a role in the Dutch energy system is primarily done by the construction of integrated energy scenarios with a cost-minimizing computer model of the Dutch energy system (MARKAL), and by analysing the role of energy technologies in these energy system configurations. A description of the methodology followed, main calculation results, short-lists of energy technologies with different levels of propectiveness and study conclusions are presented in Volume 1. This report (Volume 2) consists of two parts. In the first part the expected development of more than 200 energy technologies considered are covered. The list of energy technologies includes both energy demand technologies and energy conversion technologies at the supply side of the energy system. The expected development of energy technologies has been reported using a common format. The technology characterization has focused on the year 2030. It is noted that this list is not covering all individual technologies. Many of the technologies mentioned represent groups of technologies. This is the case with e.g. alternative fuels for transport, process changes for industry, more efficient appliances, and integrated concepts for electricity generation. The second part of the present report contains calculated results in a condensed form. For each technology it is calculated in which of the cases the technology plays a role. The role of the energy technologies has been analysed for each of the 60 cases considered. The energy technology results are compressed in so-called cost-effectiveness accounting tables. 3 fig., 470 tabs., 103 ref.
