The AURES II project has ambitious goals, and this is mostly possible thanks to the experience and the results achieved by its “father” project: AURES.
To get a better understanding of the strong link and the continuity between our recently started project and its predecessor, we interviewed the new project coordinator, Vasilios Anatolitis, of Fraunhofer ISI. Here is what he told us.
Why from AURES to AURES II?
The AURES project, running from 2015-2017, provided comprehensive analyses on renewable energy sources auctions with numerous capacity-building activities for policymakers at national and international level (several EU Member States, the EU Commission), the energy industry and other stakeholders. AURES II seeks to continue and extend the successful work of AURES.
What does AURES II inherit from AURES?
Of course we inherit precious know-out, as well as insights to build upon. For instance, we have learned that the optimal An auction is a market mechanism with the aims of allocating...

We can also draw on a variety of reports produced, including theoretic background and case studies.

In what way AURES II goes beyond AURES and why?
In AURES, we primarily analysed the theoretical foundation of RES auctions, studied first applications, and provided capacity-building activities for policymakers and other stakeholders.

More designs, and will directly accompany interested policymakers in the design process.
What does it mean for you to take the reins of the project?
It is a great honor to coordinate such an impactful project, whose predecessor AURES has already been a big success – thanks to the excellent coordination by DTU. In addition, the consortium consists of outstanding international experts on the field of renewable energy auctions, with whom it is always a pleasure to work in a project.
Personally, I am curious and already looking forward to the results and new insights on An auction is a market mechanism with the aims of allocating... More design we are going to produce in the next years.
