The road ahead for energy system integration in Europe
Virtual event (via GoToWebinar)
14 October 2021, 10.00 - 11.30
To become climate neutral by 2050, the EU intends to transform its energy system, which accounts for 75% of its greenhouse gas emissions. To that end, in July 2020, the Commission presented an EU strategy for energy system integration (ESI). ESI takes a holistic view of the electricity, gas, and heat sectors to deliver a clean, reliable, and affordable energy system. By using the synergies within and between sectors, ESI aims to increase flexibility in the energy system, maximise the integration of renewable energy and distributed generation, and reduce environmental impact. The Commission is rolling out the Fit for 55 package and many of its elements will be key for enabling energy system integration.
The ESI-enabling technologies, produced by Orgalim industries, are available. However, success will depend not only on having the right technologies, but also providing the legislative framework to empower and incentivise the different stakeholders in the field to deploy them.
Join senior policy makers and industry representatives to discuss:
- What are the success factors for achieving EU-wide energy system integration?
- What are some examples of ESI-enabling technologies available today in Europe?
- What role can the Fit for 55 package play and what elements of the package are key?
- Where do we need to be more ambitious and accelerate?
