Decarbonisation of transport through renewables is possible

Electric vehicles (EVs) hold the key to unleash synergies between clean transport and low-carbon electricity. Just as future transport must be increasingly electrified, future power systems must make maximum use of variable renewable energy sources. Smart charging for EVs minimises their load impact and unlocks the flexibility to use more solar and wind power. This … Continue reading Decarbonisation of transport through renewables is possible

More Research & Innovation essential for decarbonisation & delivering a just energy transition

On 14 and 15 November the 13th Strategic Energy Technology plan (SET-Plan) conference took place in Helsinki. The SET-Plan provides an important framework to promote the EU’s goals in energy Research and Innovation (R&I). To deliver on its ambitious climate and energy targets, Europe needs strong and fit-for-purpose innovation programmes. These will develop and improve … Continue reading More Research & Innovation essential for decarbonisation & delivering a just energy transition

IPCC report: electrification of Europe’s economy will be key to decarbonisation

A report published today by the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) states that that urgent and unprecedented measures are required to keep global temperature rises to below 1.5 degrees Celsius. The IPCC warned that there is only twelve years for global warming to be kept to a maximum of 1.5C. Even half a … Continue reading IPCC report: electrification of Europe’s economy will be key to decarbonisation

WindEurope discusses decarbonisation of transport with Members of European Parliament

The decarbonisation of transport and its integration into the electricity system is a cornerstone of the energy transition. But we have to ensure the power that is driving electro-mobility is clean. Today 29% of the electricity consumed in Europe comes from renewables, by 2030 this share is due to reach 50%. This means the acceleration … Continue reading WindEurope discusses decarbonisation of transport with Members of European Parliament
