The power sector can be decarbonise 5-10 years before previous estimates. As electricity demand recovers to pre-pandemic levels, renewables continue to dominate the generation mix, while fossil-based generation drops. This year’s Power Barometer, a set of key industry indicators, leveraging a data-driven approach and industry-wide figures, reflects a historic development in the power sector, and points to the challenges ahead of delivering the Fit for 55% ambitions.
Vehicle fleet electrification can be the driving force of clean mobility, rapid deployment of charging infrastructure and the creation of a second-hand EV market. Find out more from Accelerating fleet electrification in Europe: When does reinventing the wheel make perfect sense?
The European electricity sector is in the midst of a fundamental transformation. The drive towards climate neutrality triggers an urgent need to upgrade Europe’s distribution grids. Connecting the dots is the first European study assessing the investments needed to make the grids fit-for-purpose in an increasingly decentralised, decarbonised and digitalised power system. How old the grids are? How much renewable generation will be added? Will the electricity prices increase?
E-quality: shaping and inclusive energy transition analyses concrete policies implemented by administrations across the world and presents the key measures that can fully offset the regressive effects of climate policies, paving the way for a successful energy transition.
Ports can play a pivotal role in the world’s decarbonisation challenge as natural hotspots for sector coupling and energy system integration. The study reveals that the expected deployment of offshore wind and the required grid enforcements will lead to an advantageous position for large industrial ports as a hub for renewable energy generation
Decisive action on climate change is needed for a deep decarbonisation, and this requires a major shift to electricity in transport, buildings and industry in the EU. Decarbonisation pathways, analyses 3 electrification and decarbonisation scenarios, and presents the main enablers of carbon neutrality.
