Event: The need for a Climate Neutral Integrated System Package for Energy (Brussels, 20 November 2019)

For the past 10 years, the Renewables Grid Initiative (RGI) has been committed to the sustainable development of necessary electricity grids. Expanding the grid to connect renewable energy sources (RES) to consumers and to facilitate the use of RES across Europe is an essential and efficient way to decarbonise the economy. However, a RES based energy system will need more than grids to provide the required system flexibility. Significant changes are needed to successfully manage and efficiently achieve the energy transition. New flexibility options need to be developed to control frequency and voltage and new technologies are needed to provide long-term energy storage, among others.

A new European legislative package is required to address these needs and we want to investigate what are the key elements of such a forward looking “Climate Neutral Integrated System Package”.

Press Release: World Energy Outlook 2019 highlights deep disparities in the global energy system

Deep disparities define today’s energy world. The dissonance between well-supplied oil markets and growing geopolitical tensions and uncertainties. The gap between the ever-higher amounts of greenhouse gas emissions being produced and the insufficiency of stated policies to curb those emissions in line with international climate targets. The gap between the promise of energy for all and the lack of electricity access for 850 million people around the world.

Press Release: Commentary: Understanding users is key to the evolution of the world’s energy systems

The choices made by individuals are having a significant effect on the evolution of the global energy system. Thanks to distributed renewables, users are no longer only consuming energy – they are also producing it. Shifts in consumer behaviour, such as a move toward electric vehicles, are also creating stresses and opportunities for power systems.

Briefing: Cybersecurity of critical energy infrastructure

The European Union (EU) has a high level of energy security, enabled by oil and gas reserve stocks, and one of the most reliable electricity grids in the world. However, a number of established and emerging trends pose new challenges to the security of energy supply, notably in the electricity sector. The production, distribution and use of energy is becoming increasingly digitalised and automated, a trend which will further increase with the transformation towards a distributed carbon-neutral energy system and the growth of the ‘internet of things’, which means that more and more networked devices will be connected to the electricity grid. This provides increased opportunities for malicious actors to carry out attacks on the energy system, notably cyber-attacks, possibly in combination with physical damage and social engineering.
