Presented at: 10th IAEE European conference, Vienna, Austria, 8-10 september 2009.

The envisaged increase of electricity generation from intermittent renewable energy sources(RES-E) will increase system integration costs considerably. As a result, European targets for 2020 are not likely to be achieved in case no system cost reducing measures are taken. Therefore, based on an earlier analysis of a wide range of technical and institutional cost reducing options, this paper places the options in road map perspective for timely consideration and implementation of the most important options by national and European policymakers and other stakeholders.
