A new JRC report explores the advantages and challenges of the net-zero energy districts approach.
Rooftop solar photovoltaic (PV) systems can make a significant contribution to Europe’s energy transition. Realising this potential raises challenges at policy and electricity system planning level. To address this, the authors have developed a geospatially explicit methodology using up-to-date spatial information of the EU building stock to quantify the available rooftop area for PV systems.
As the world moves towards a carbon neutral future, many different areas from industry to manufacturing are working to reduce their emissions. But scientists are beginning to look at a different area – houses – to work out if it’s possible to reduce emissions from Europe’s homes to zero by retrofitting on a mass scale. And the early signs are promising.
The Sixth Annual EPRI-IEA Challenges in Electricity Decarbonisation Expert Workshopwill focus on the growing number of mid-century electric sector emissions targets announced by governments and electric utilities throughout the world, near- and long-term strategies to achieve those targets, and potential challenges likely to be encountered along the way.
The utility-driven, case-study led conference programme also includes a technology-innovation panel, a series of end-user driven round table discussions, a live demo lab of the latest vendor tools, an exhibition area displaying state of the art DER and flexibility technologies, an extended blockchain tutorial and a networking evening reception open to all participants.
As the UK’s energy generation and distribution market accelerates, attention is steered towards balancing generation, supply, and demand and creating necessary storage facilities. The integration of cross-sector and collaborative projects becomes crucial for a sustainable energy future but what are the next steps?
The Commission decided to reinvest unspent funds from the NER300 programme to support low-carbon innovation projects under InnovFin Energy Demo Projects (EDP), an EU financial instrument managed by the European Investment Bank. The first three projects are now benefiting from support of some €73 million.
The “fifth generation” of telecommunication systems will be a critical building block of our digital economy and society in the next decade. Mobile traffic doubles every two years and new applications are emerging. This factsheet explains how 5G will provide the capacities and performance to meet these connectivity needs.
New technologies for sector coupling and sector integration and energy carriers such as renewable hydrogen are key to securing a cost-effective energy transition towards a carbon- neutral economy. To reach this potential we must make use of the existing EU energy infrastructure, integrating different energy vectors in a seamless manner.
The main takeaways from the Dutch Climate Agreement debate will be presented, as well as from an analytical work on decarbonisation pathways carried out by Gasunie and TenneT, before discussing challenges and approaches to decarbonising Europe’s energy system.
CERRE researchers have analysed electricity markets involving different degrees of consumer engagement. It looks at emerging regulatory challenges stemming from the need to encourage changes in consumers’ behaviour so that they can take full advantage of the opportunities offered by new technological and market access opportunities.
Join key actors from the sector, including representatives of firms active in the generation, transmission and distribution of energy, tech companies, regulatory authorities, policy-makers and academic experts, for an afternoon of exciting discussions!
The European Research Council just awarded top-up funding totalling €9.3 million to 62 ERC grant holders via its Proof of Concept scheme. The grants will help them explore the commercial or societal potential of their ERC-funded discoveries. This latest batch of grants includes the 1000th project to receive Proof of Concept funding since the scheme started in 2011. Engineer Miguel González Herráez, based in the University of Alcalá, will manage the milestone project.
Join ENABLE.EU to understand how behaviours and practices shape the energy transition. As the European Union embraces a citizen-oriented energy transition, ENABLE.EU has researched how individuals make energy choices in 11 European countries.
The European Technology and Innovation Platform for Smart Networks for Energy Transition (ETIP SNET) and TNO invite you to the ETIP SNET Central & Northern Regions’ Workshop, to be held on September 19-20 in Petten, the Netherlands.
The Workshop will provide a unique opportunity to learn from the Central & Northern Regions’ national Research & Innovation (R&I) projects and the chance to contribute to the identification of R&I gaps, challenges and priorities at Central Region and EU levels.
The EU electricity industry is committed to delivering a renewable-based and carbon neutral power supply in Europe well before 2050, which offers the prospect of turning Europe into a carbon-neutral economy by 2050.
The event is timed to welcome the new European Parliament and Commission and discuss with key stakeholders from industry and politics what’s needed to keep up the new solar momentum in Europe.
The 5th edition of Eurogas Central and Eastern European Conference (CEEC), organised with the kind support of Latvijas Gāze and Conexus Baltic Grid, will address the issue of “The Baltic Region: Setting the pace for gas market integration”, with a particular focus on the functioning of the regional gas market, as well as the potential of LNG and the value of storage.
The updated Horizon 2020 Work Programme provides €47 million to kick-start the large-scale research initiative on future battery technologies previously announced in the Commission Strategic Action Plan for Batteries.
The Energy Storage Europe is an international trade fair with accompanying congress on the collection and storage of renewable energy, which is an issue that moves scientists and politicians worldwide. The conference is characterized by well-known speakers and participants. Here are discussed the latest developments in energy storage, but are also given critical insights into the market development and technology integration.
