Event: A Cost-Effective Transition Unlocking the Benefits of Sector Coupling (Brussels, 13 November 2019)

The EU is committed to the transformation towards a low-carbon economy as detailed in the 2050 long-term strategy. To produce a carbon-neutral, affordable and secure energy mix, all energy vectors – electricity, gas, heating & cooling – will have to evolve. New technology is already giving more options to consumers (e.g. transport and residential heating now employ workable alternatives to petrol and gas, respectively) and is physically linking the energy vectors – Power-to-Gas and Gas-to-Power. ‘Sector coupling’, the integration of energy end-use and supply sectors, could potentially reduce the costs of decarbonisation and improve energy efficiency.
